Are you ready to think like a geologist? Get hands-on with the rock cycle, types of rocks and minerals, and erosion. With 3 exciting activities, you will not take your new knowledge for granite! This program is approximately 1.5-2 hours and is appropriate for students Ages 5+.

This program includes:

  • Creating an edible model of the Rock Cycle

  • Making observations of rocks and minerals

  • Experimenting with Erosion

  • A take home kit with your very own rock or mineral

  • Field Trip Only: Beach Walk to learn about Rocks and Erosion in Florida

 

Bring this program to your classroom OR travel on a field trip to see erosion in action in nature.

Standards:

  • SC.4.E.6.1 - Identify the three categories of rocks: igneous, (formed from molten rock); sedimentary (pieces of other rocks and fossilized organisms); and metamorphic (formed from heat and pressure).

  • SC.4.E.6.4 - Describe the basic differences between physical weathering (breaking down of rock by wind, water, ice, temperature change, and plants) and erosion (movement of rock by gravity, wind, water, and ice).

  • SC.7.E.6.2 - Identify the patterns within the rock cycle and relate them to surface events (weathering and erosion) and sub-surface events (plate tectonics and mountain building).

  • SC.7.E.6.6. - Identify the impact that humans have had on Earth, such as deforestation, urbanization, desertification, erosion, air and water quality, changing the flow of water.
