Distinguish among sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks.
3.1

 
Diagram the rock cycle including the processes involved in the formation of each rock group.
3.2
  1. Interactive Rock Cycle Animation - a cutaway view of Earth showing where some common rock-forming processes occur. Embedded animations will illustrate the path of a rock moving through the rock cycle. This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data or This interactive site would work well on an interactive whiteboard
  2. Introduction to Geology - a rock cycle quiz This site includes questions for your students to check their understanding
  3. The Rock Cycle - Look at the diagram and see if you can trace a rock through the rock cycle.
  4. Rock Cycle from the Mineralogical Society of America

  13. Rocky's Rock Cycle Games - Easy - Harder - drag the pictures into the correct place on the rock cycle drawing - from the Oxford University Museum of Natural History This site is interactive and allows students to play a game or input or collect data or This interactive site would work well on an interactive whiteboard
  14. A Schematic Sketch of the Rock Cycle - boxes represent earth materials and arrows represent the processes that transform those materials
Recognize that rocks are composed of various combinations of minerals.
3.3
 
Distinguish between intrusive (plutonic) and extrusive (volcanic) igneous rocks.
3.4
 
Differentiate among plutonic bodies such as sills, dikes, batholiths, and laccoliths.
3.5
 
Identify the properties of igneous rocks such as granite, rhyolite, basalt, gabbro, obsidian, and pumice.
3.6
 
Understand sedimentary processes.
