Lesson Plan

Rock Cycle Roundabout

After a basic introduction to the rock cycle and the three main types of rocks, young geologists can deepen their understanding of how rocks change through a fun learning game. Based on the characteristics and events shared by a reader, other learners must guess what type of change a rock will undergo. After completing the game, the rock cycle is recreated on paper, then the class discusses some thought-provoking questions about the geologic timescale and why certain types of rocks are found where they are. The game board and cards are available in English, Spanish, and Chinese.
