29 slide PowerPoint on igneous rocks. See preview! Starting with the rock cycle, the PowerPoint focuses on igneous rocks and how to identify them based on the following properties: formation environment (intrusive versus extrusive), crystal habit, texture (coarse, fine, or glassy), mineral composition, and color. Rocks addressed are granite, basalt, gabbro, rhyolite, obsidian, pumice, diabase/diorite, and scoria.
The PowerPoint ends with a concept map graphic organizer and summary page.
This is a great pre-identification lab PowerPoint.
This has been used as a pre-class, note organizer, lab prep, study guide, and review. This is an effective teaching tool one on one, in small groups, and as a class when using a Smart Board/Promethean Board/Projection.
A great addition to your geology teaching library.
Applicable to many state science assessments and benchmarks.
Has been applied to state mandated North Carolina end of year tests for science in grades 5 and 8.
Even used by teachers in New York State as a preparation for the Earth Science Grade 9 Regents Exam.
