This is a fun task-based, interactive internet activity that students access through the computer. It teaches all aspects of the rock cycle through vocabulary, visual and audio demonstrations, and a graphic organizer lab sheet to record findings.
The five tasks center on vocabulary, types of rocks, what rocks are made of, the parts of the rock cycle, and weathering and erosion.
This Rock Cycle WebQuest includes:
1. Access to 13 page detailed WebQuest website
2. Accompanying lab sheet
3. Webquest lesson plan
4. Interactive online glossary with pictures, links and notated FCAT tested vocabulary
The WebQuest can be used for lower grade levels as a teacher lead lesson and higher grade levels as an individual activity or point of research.
