Need a rock cycle activity? This webquest makes a virtual study of the rock cycle easy for you and instructive for your students as they explore the rock cycle in a structured way.

Build knowledge and/or review information on the three main types of rocks – igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic – as well as how rocks are continuously broken down and created through the rock cycle.

For most students the webquest works best as a follow up activity to an introductory lesson. It also serves as a great review before a test. For advanced or older students this webquest can serve as an introductory activity!

Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales. Emphasis is on how processes change Earth’s surface at time and spatial scales that can be large (such as slow plate motions or the uplift of large mountain ranges) or small (such as rapid landslides or microscopic geochemical reactions), and how many geoscience processes (such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and meteor impacts) usually behave gradually but are punctuated by catastrophic events. Examples of geoscience processes include surface weathering and deposition by the movements of water, ice, and wind. Emphasis is on geoscience processes that shape local geographic features, where appropriate.
