This is a 4 or 5-day science lab that gets your students thinking and observing just like real scientists! This hands-on, interactive lab will definitely get your kids excited about seeing what happens to rocks when they experience extreme weather conditions (cold, heat, wind, and flooding).
Have your students work independently or in partnerships/small groups to follow a rock for 4-5 days as it goes through some very challenging conditions. Students will make predictions every single day and then compare their thoughts to others' as they record and share all observations on their very own rock journal.
The materials used are things you probably have right on hand or are very easily accessible in your school.
Step by step, daily directions are included as well as suggested CCCS standards.
Put some fun back into the science classroom!
