In this lesson, we are going to be learning about igneous rock. We are going to learn about the structure of the Earth, how to recognise igneous rock and some of the uses of igneous rock. We will also learn how igneous rock is made, using ice and chocolate as a model! You will need a piece of paper and a pencil for this lesson.
Unit: Rock cycle
In this lesson, we are going to learn about metamorphic rock! We are going to learn why it is called metamorphic rock and how it is made. Then we will look at some different examples of metamorphic rock and discuss how their properties make them fit for their uses. For this lesson, you will need a pencil, a piece of paper and a ruler.
In this lesson, we will learn about our third type of rock: sedimentary rock. We will look at the steps needed to make sedimentary rock and how fossils are formed in sedimentary rock. We will then learn what a palaeontologist is and identify some different fossils. For this lesson you will need a piece of paper and a pencil.
In this lesson, we are going to become geologists! We have some problems to solve which are going to require us to make careful observations and construct an identification key to help us to identify different rocks. You will need a piece of paper, a pencil and a ruler for this lesson.
In this lesson, we will learn how rocks change. We will look at rocks as big as mountains and as small as a grain of sand and learn the processes that form each. We will look at erosion, weathering and the movements of tectonic plates. You will need a piece of paper and a pencil for this lesson.
In this lesson, we will learn each of the steps of the rock cycle. We will learn how igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rock are all connected through a demonstration involving jelly beans! You will need a piece of paper, a pencil and a ruler for this lesson.
