Rocks, Rocks, Rocks!

This week, students were introduced to the three types of rocks: sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic.  We then held a discussion about what makes each rock different.  We learned that the sedimentary rocks are formed by layers.  The igneous rocks are formed when magma cools, and the metamorphic rocks form when layers are pressed with heat and pressure.  Students then created a visual representation of each type of rock.
