Product Description
The goal of this lesson is for students to discover how rocks change from one form to another in a process called the rock cycle. To understand this important standard, students will create their own model of the rock cycle using Starburst candy. They will then write a scientific argument that explains the rock cycle using the CER (claim, evidence, reasoning) method. This activity is a fun and engaging way to meet a very important NGSS/Common Core Standard. Please note the following items will be needed: Starburst candies, candles (or microwave), scissors, forceps (or crucible tongs) and aluminum foil.

This product contains:
★ A three page student handout that guides them through the process of transforming their starburst rocks into sediment, sedimentary rock, metamorphic rock, and igneous rock (EDITABLE WORD DOC ALSO INCLUDED)
★ A key which includes a full example CER argument
★ Teacher tips and suggestions plus pictures of the final starburst rock cycle
