This is a highly engaging, fun and simple lesson! It includes a 30 slide Power Point presentation on the rock cycle and the different types of rocks. While you give your presentation, students recreate igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks with candy chews. Most slides are color-coordinated to make delivery easier to understand (pink slides indicate that students need to take notes, green slides indicate a step of the experiment, blue slides indicate definitions). The Power Point presentation also includes photo examples of each rock type in nature.
A 7 page Teacher Guide is also included. There are short instructions and suggestions for each slide.
Finally, a worksheet (and answer key) is included so that students can reproduce the rock cycle for their notebook.
***Files with the Canadian spelling are included.***
