PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

METAMORPHIC ROCK POWERPOINT

31 slide PowerPoint on metamorphic rocks. See preview! Starting with the rock cycle, the PowerPoint focuses on metamorphic rocks and how to identify them based on the following properties: formation environment (regional metamorphism and contact metamorphism), crystal/particle habit (foliated versus non-foliated, crystallized, and carbonized) texture (coarse, fine, glassy), mineral composition, color, and density. Rocks addressed are granite to gneiss, sandstone to quartzite, mica to schist, limestone to marble, shale to slate, and bituminous coal to anthracite coal. As an addition, the history of the Earth landmasses through plate tectonics is also examined.

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.

Within the classroom, this activity has been consistently very successful and acclaimed by students in grades 5th – 10th within multiple types of schools - public, private, and charter.

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.
