SEDIMENTARY ROCK POWERPOINT
30 slide PowerPoint on sedimentary rocks. See preview! Starting with the rock cycle, the PowerPoint focuses on sedimentary rocks and how to identify them based on the following properties: formation environment (rivers, shallow water environments, deep water environments, tropical environments, lakes), crystal/particle habit (pebbles, sand, silt, clay, carbon, and mineral crystals), texture (clastic, chemical - crystalline, organic - bioclastic), mineral composition, color, and fossil conduciveness. Rocks addressed are conglomerate, breccia, sandstone, limestone, bituminous coal, rock salt, rocky gypsum, chert, dolomite, geode, and shale. As an addition, the Marcellus Shale and environmental fracking is also explored.
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.
