Rock Cycle Vocabulary Trading Cards and Word Wall! Make studying the rock cycle FUN in whole groups, partners, individually, or centers with meaningful, research based strategies! This is a set of 16 Rock Cycle Vocabulary cards that you can use with your students in geology unit dealing with the rock cycle. I originally created them for my ELL students to look like trading cards and soon found that all of my students LOVE using them! I’ve also added an enlarged set of these cards that you can post in your room to use as a rock cycle word wall or bulletin board.
English + Spanish (A Spanish Rock Cycle version is now included for FREE)

This Rock Cycle Vocabulary Set includes:

• The same 16 rock cycle cards with the words on them but blank spaces for students to draw their own picture room to write their own definitions and sentences.
• 8 blank cards that students can use to add more geology/rock cycle terms to as they come across them in their studies.
• A template for a labeled box that students can cut out, write their name on and color to store their rock cycle cards in.
• A list of ways you can use these rock cycle vocabulary flashcards/trading cards with your students that is based on Robert Marzano’s “Six Steps to Better Vocabulary Instruction”. This list helps me because I can show parents, administrators, other teachers, etc. that I’m using research-based methods in my classroom.

I print these rock cycle cards out double sided on card stock so they look and feel like real trading cards but they work just as well on regular paper. The front of each card has the word and a picture. The back has a definition and a sentence.
The 16 words included in this set of cards are:
• Igneous rock
• Metamorphic rock
