This card sort is for practicing understanding of the Rock Cycle and its processes from one type of rock (igneous, metamorphic, sedimentary) to another or another material (molten rock or sediment).
The card sort comes with 26 cards.
*5 of 26 are OBJECT CARDS which have the three types of rocks, molten rock, and sediment.
*10 of 26 are ARROW CARDS, each with a process of formation printed on it.
*11 of 26 cards have questions on the front asking about a specific process.
*Students must put multiple cards together in order to represent one process. In the end, students will be able to piece every card together to represent the entire rock cycle.
The great part about this card sort is that there are three envelope cut-outs provided for each type of card. These envelopes hold each set of cards and these envelopes can be glued into a page in the journal as shown in the picture above.
Each envelope has a face that shows the how that card can be identified.
Using card stock paper for the cards works the best! Be sure to print cards two-sided! Let me know what you think! Thanks!
