  2. Tired of textbooks meshing rocks and minerals? Teach them explicitly. I've combined two of my favorite bundles: my Properties and Uses of Mineral Bundle and my Rock Bundle: Types of Rocks.

Want to teach types of rocks in the most ENGAGING way?! The key to teaching rocks WELL is to teach one type at a time. You'll introduce one rock type at a time: identify and learn about the individual rocks in the group, read about how they form, how they are described and identified, and do an identification lab. Start with igneous, then move on to sedimentary and metamorphic. Finally, students will have a BLAST with my starburst rock cycle lab. Review is included in the form of a crossword puzzle and task cards. Extra help is included in the form of sorting cards (for use with identifying rocks). There are 4 assessments included - 1 editable quiz for each rock type; 1 test for ALL the rock types + the rock cycle.

(I have this unit labeled for grades 7-10, but I've used it with 6th and just omitted the identification labs and some of the review sheets and they LOVED it.)

**INCLUDES: Student workbook!! (with answer key) A compilation of all the student pages, with checkpoints in between! Enjoy! ONLY available in the bundle! Check out the preview video for an overview!**
