Classifying Sedimentary, Igneous, and Metamorphic Rocks Lesson Kit
This comprehensive kit makes geology come alive. Using actual rock samples, a fictional scenario describes the alleged discovery of diamonds in a national forest by a pair of hikers. Students learn that certain natural resources are often found in association with certain rocks. A reading on the formation of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks supplements student observations as they examine, describe and group rock samples. Students use this knowledge to identify the hikers' rocks and decide whether the hikers were likely to have seen diamonds. The worksheets provided guide students to work in pairs. This reusable kit is designed for 32 students in grades 6 through 10.
