Inquiry based lab on students creating a procedure that shows the steps and processes of the natural rock cycle. Very few materials needs, plastic knives or coins, crayons, hot plate or bunsen burner, and tin foil. I give the students more materials than necessary and make them chose what they need.
No answer key included because questions are based off of student observations.
This is aligned with the next generation science standards.
HS-ESS2-3. Develop a model based on evidence of Earth’s interior to describe the cycling of matter by thermal convection.
**There is a direct instruction low inquiry lab on TpT also**
