PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product includes FIVE fun, memorable, and engaging activities to help your 4th-6th graders better understand the process of the rock cycle.


Activities include:

The Rock Cycle Reader's Theater: A fun way to act out the rock cycle! This reader's theater contains 20 speaking parts that explain the process that a rock goes through in the rock cycle. Students will not only be able to define sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rocks but they will also learn science vocabulary such as weathering, erosion, deposition, compaction, cementation, sediment, intrusive, extrusive, mantle, magma, and lava. Each word is defined in the script. Students will also review examples of each type of rock in the cycle. Included is a vocabulary sheet.

Rock Cycle Experiment Using Starbursts: Using Starbursts, students will perform an experiment demonstrating the rock cycle. Students will see how to form sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous rock using heat and pressure! This lab printout will guide students through the experiment, leaving space to record observations and draw pictures.

Rock Cycle I Have Who Has Game: This "I have who has" game reviews rock cycle vocabulary by requiring students to read vocabulary definitions and then find who has the correct matching term. Timing students can encourage them to help each other, communicate clearly, and set goals to beat their time. This includes 21 vocabulary words and 7 blank cards that you can add more definitions to. Includes examples of the three types of rock. Vocabulary: sedimentary, deposition, geology, weathering, nonfoliated, slate, metamorphic, granite, compaction, erosion, cementation, lava, extrusive and intrusive igneous, texture, foliated, limestone, magma, and sediment.

Rock Cycle Word Ladder: A fun game where students start at the bottom of the ladder and using the clues, they make their way up the ladder by solving a new word at each step! Make it a competition and split the class into teams! Answers included. For even more word ladders, check out Science Word Ladders.

Rock Cycle Puzzle: The puzzle can serve as a fun test review, science center activity, and even an easy activity for a substitute. Just print and have students cut out the pieces (make sure to remind them to mix up the pieces!). Then students can glue the puzzle together on construction paper or you can laminate the pieces and save the puzzles for years! For even more puzzles, check out Science Review Puzzles.
