This booklet is designed to help students become more familiar with each type of rock and how they are made. The booklet is a guide to be used in investigations of rocks.
I created three stations- One for Sedimentary, one for Metamorphic, and one for Igneous. Each station included a video of how that type of rock was made (which I showed on ipad's that were provided at each station, but you could use computers or ipods, etc.), a sample of that type of rock, and multiple pictures of the rock. Students rotated through the stations, watching the video and completing their booklets. Students were able to work towards a "Rock Treat" where I included a food item to model each type of rock.(rice crispy treats or sedimentary, p,b and j -or just bread and jelly- for metamorphic, and a Hershey's kiss igneous) for Students must complete all stations to get to their treat.
