Let's Rock is a 36 slide powerpoint presentation (with Notebook interactive element) that thoroughly discusses the three types of rock and the characteristics of each. Each has pictures that demonstrate these characteristics. The many uses of rock are discussed as well. There are two versions of interactive rock cycle charts. One is included in the powerpoint itself, the other is a "click, drag, & place" Notebook presentation that is also included.
All slides are animated with matching sound effects to make the presentation more interesting to students. Complete and simple instructions (just 3 steps) are included for those new to powerpoint that would like to add a "rock" song to the four opening slides. "We Will Rock You" really grabs the kids' attention.
I also have a question sheet that I have kids fill out during the presentation. This sheet acts as a study guide for the test, which is also included. There are also blank copies of the rock cycle chart from the presentation. Everything comes with thorough answer keys and follows this presentation exactly.
