Rock Unit - A Geologist Investigation
This is such a fun hands on unit. It is packed with content and activities that support learning. I use the attached power point to teach each lesson as a whole group. Following the lesson, or the next day, I have students conduct the investigation and complete recording sheet. Each recording sheet has a second page to be printed back to back. If you fold the sheet into fourths, it will fit into any interactive science notebook. Students will love this unit!

-5 interactive lesson power point introducing the 3 types of rocks.
