The Rock Cycle and Our World
(Science)


What are rocks? How are they formed? Where do they come from? Students will examine the three rock types: sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous in an attempt to understand the similarities and differences in each. We will also look at differences between rocks and minerals while we learn about some important uses for minerals found in rocks.
