Students use flash cards to sequence how sedimentary rocks are created.
Before class, cut out each card and paperclip them together. Next, students will put the flashcards in the correct order for how a sedimentary rock is created.
I have included flashcards with illustrations, flashcards to match with illustrations, and flashcards without illustrations. In my class, I used the cards that do not have the illustrations first. Students had to glue the cards into the correct order in their journal and then create their own illustrations. This helped them take ownership of the learning.
Later as a review, I also printed the cards with illustrations on card stock (for sped students) and the flashcards to match with the illustrations. I reuse them each year as a warm up or quick review. I keep several answer keys, so students that finish quickly become expert checkers. With the help of student checkers, this activity can easily be finished in five minutes for the whole group
