In this one time class, we will learn the slow, long journey rocks take through the rock cycle. We will learn about the three main types of rock - igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic. To demonstrate this, we will do an activity with starburst candy. Students will need to use the microwave or a hair dryer to apply heat to their "rock" (starburst). I love teaching in an interactive way by asking questions and involving students in discussion. My goal is for students to have fun learning...
Students will have a basic understanding of the rock cycle.
- Starburst Candy - Scissors - A source of heat (e.g., toaster oven, microwave, blow dryer) - Tongs - Waxed paper (cut into 15 – 20 cm squares) - Aluminum foil (cut into 20 – 25 cm squares, with edges folded up like a dish) - Rolling pin or heavy book
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
students will need supervision using a microwave or blow dryer and scissors
