Rock cycle

Today students tried their hands at being geologists! They examined and described different rocks, and used a key to identify them. They then used illustrated information sheets and/or rock cycle formation maps to do research on how and where different rocks are formed. We had some good discussions as students thought about the processes that can turn one rock into another, in the never-ending Rock Cycle. See if your student can find an example of one of the rocks we studied next time you’re walking around outside – many specimens were examples of very common rocks!

El ciclo de las rocas ¡Hoy los estudiantes intentaron ser geólogos! Examinaron y describieron rocas diferentes, utilizaron una clave para identificarlas. Luego utilizaron hojas de información ilustradas y / o mapas de formación del ciclo de las rocas para investigar cómo y dónde se forman las diferentes rocas. Tuvimos algunas buenas discusiones mientras los alumnos pensaban sobre los procesos que pueden convertir una roca en otra, en el ciclo de rock interminable. Vea si su estudiante puede encontrar un ejemplo de una de las rocas que estudiamos la próxima vez que camine afuera. ¡Muchos especímenes fueron ejemplos de rocas muy comunes!
