This particular segment focuses on the types of sedimentary rocks and their classification schemes, the key terminology associated with sedimentary rocks, and sedimentary rock formation processes. Sedimentary rocks are classified into one of three categories: clastic, chemical, and organic (bio-clastic). In this activity, the classification is done in 2 ways: first by scientific definition and second by picture. Additional key sedimentary terminology with matching images are: rock outcrops, weathering, erosion, deposition, burial, compaction, lithification, and cementation.
The sedimentary rocks detailed in this activity are: conglomerate, breccia, siltstone, sandstone, shale, rock salt, rock gypsum, limestone, bioclastic limestone, and bituminous coal.
This works well for any level but is GREAT for special education students or college prep learners that need an alternative assessment and may not be great at traditional labs.
This is a thorough and DYNAMIC activity that covers a ton of information about sedimentary rocks. This has been used as a pre-class, lab/activity, study guide, review, and assessment. This is an effective teaching tool one on one, in small groups, and as a class when using a Smart Board/Promethean Board/Projection.
