This packet contains relevant handouts for a rock story project, where students write a children's story about a rock. In their story they must describe the journey a rock takes as it transforms from one rock type to another. The packet includes rubrics, guidelines, worksheets to peer edit and self-edit, as well as an alternative assignment. The rubrics include both effort and achievement. The achievement rubrics align with the IB curriculum standards. This has been a very successful assignment, yielding excellent stories that students then read to elementary school students.
