This HUGE rock cycle, minerals, and soil unit BUNDLE is a hands-on, interactive science and literacy unit focusing on cooperative learning activities and written for 3rd - 5th grades. The focused rocks are sandstone, conglomerate, shale, limestone, gneiss, schist, marble, granite, basalt, obsidian, and pumice. Weathering, erosion, minerals, components of soil, and soil layers are all addressed too. There are over 350 pages in this bundle!
This was written for Utah 4th graders but isn't specific only to Utah. (On the planning page it does refer to Utah.) This purchase is for one license in ONE classroom. This comprehensive unit has more activities than you will likely do! This is HUGE and is sold as a zipped file which can easily be clicked on to open. If sold separately, the price would be about $50. This BUNDLE is about 50% off and works well with interactive science journals. Thanks for respecting my creative property. I appreciate great feedback too!
