Students are given the chance to show what they've learned about the rock cycle in a creative way with this poster activity! This activity works really well in the explain phase of a 5E lesson plan and easily integrates into the NGSS integrated and domain standards. Students create a poster of the rock cycle, where the rocks flip up to reveal information about each type of rock (defintion, examples, and characteristics). Relating the stages of the rock cycle to energy transfer (adding or removing) is included as an extension, but can be included with general use of the project. Suggestions are included for students needing additional help, or for use as a whole class. Suggested rubric is also included, along with a student example.
