Product Description
ROCK CYCLE – CLOSE READING, READING REFLECTION, GRAPHIC ORGANIZER, INTERACTIVE NOTEBOOK ENTRY

Teaching your students the rock cycle doesn’t have to be intimidating or overwhelming. This engaging lesson makes the concept of the rock cycle easy for you and fun for your students!

This rock cycle lesson is a perfect way to engage students and add a useful entry into their interactive notebooks or science journals! I’ve found that my students really benefit from the graphic organizer, especially around test time. This lesson incorporates various activities to engage multiple learning styles.

Students read an engaging passage with graphics covering a real life example of the rock cycle. Then they complete a response sheet over the reading and a graphic organizer of the rock cycle, perfect for interactive notebooks.

Full answer keys for all pages is included along with teacher suggestions.

WHAT’S INCLUDED

- 8 pages

- Close reading with real life example of the rock cycle

- Reflection questions covering the rock cycle reading passage

- Two differentiated versions of a rock cycle graphic organizer perfect for interactive notebooks or science journals

- Full teacher keys

- Teacher suggestions covering how I’ve used the lesson in my classroom.

HOW I’VE USED THE LESSON IN MY CLASSROOM

I use this close reading and graphic organizer as a key component of my rock cycle science unit and for further review of key vocabulary, and reading comprehension practice.

Approximately one to two class periods in length (as a point of reference, I teach a 50-minute class). I generally have my students first read the passage and respond to the questions. I then allow my students to use various devices to access the internet to print or find visual examples of rock types to aid in the completion of the graphic organizer and we generally complete all the activities and add the graphic organizer to their interactive notebooks in two days.

FOR MY FELLOW TEXANS

I use this lesson to support Texas TEKS 6.10 B “classify rocks as metamorphic, igneous, or sedimentary by the processes of their formation”. However, this lesson would work well in any classroom that covers geology or the rock cycle.
