Need a new and engaging way to teach the Rock Cycle? Want to use technology but not sure how to implement it? Then this unit is for you!
It consists of a 10 station rotation with an introductory video where students will collect information and pictures about the Rock Cycle using iPads or iPod Touches and two computers. They will use a variety of apps, websites, and videos to gather information. The students will have two products at the end: a study guide created from their answer booklet and a project or presentation. This unit has been facilitated several times with great success!
It allows students to explore and inquire without direct teacher instruction. Instead, the teacher’s role will be to guide and facilitate students’ learning experiences.
Your students will:
Engage by making connections with new content and their daily lives.
Explore ideas and new concepts with hands-on activities.
Explain new ideas and concepts
Elaborate by showing their new knowledge in an original creation
Evaluate by applying, connecting, and demonstrating their knowledge
