Learn about the different types of rocks and the rock cycle with this PowerPoint slideshow and student workbook. This resource explores the three main types of rocks: sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous, and the processes that occur to these rocks within the rock cycle.
Students will learn how rocks are formed and impacted by weathering and erosion, heat and pressure, and more.
You will get:
- A PowerPoint slideshow that includes information about each rock, how it was formed, the processes rocks go through, and a display of the rock cycle (labeled and unlabeled). There is also a blank slide for adding additional information if needed.
- A student workbook that includes a title page, space to write definitions for topic-specific vocabulary, pages about each type of rock and processes to complement the PowerPoint slideshow, and observation pages (observing different rocks, rocks found in the playground, and erosion in the playground).
This is a ready-to-go resource that will help you to teach about the rock cycle with ease.
You will need PowerPoint to open the presentation. You can also upload to Google Slides easily using these instructions.
