Each student is given a rock to research. They create a create a rough draft that includes how the the rock was formed, the rocks characteristics, and the minerals it is made up of. Helpful web sites are included. They use their research to create a new soft drink. Students come up with a creative name for their soft drink that reflects their rock. They use their research to describe their drink. What color is it? How does it taste? What kind of texture does it have? What are its ingredients? Students will then use the can template provided to create an interesting design for their soft drink. They can use the fizz bubbles in their design.
This is a fun way for students to learn about rocks. A self-assessment is included for students to reflect on their work.
