Rock Cycle Book by Myrna Martin
Our Rock Cycle textbook includes 16 chapters. Titles include: Properties of Igneous Rocks, Pyroclastic Rocks, Sedimentary Rocks, Chemical Rocks, Organic Rocks, Foliated Rocks and Massive Rocks.
Each chapter contains 2-3 pages of written material, a quiz and a science activity.
The science activities are fun and easy to do. They also increase a student's understanding of the rock cycle information taught in the lesson. Examples of the activities include: Making Sandstone, Growing Salt Crystals, Recycling Plants, Weighty Layers and Rock Cycle Game. Each of these activities are designed to be created by students with materials commonly found around the home or in the neighborhood.
Myrna Martin introduces each lesson in the textbook on a video that can also be purchased on this store for instant download or on DVD. Myrna covers not only the main points in the lesson she also includes extra information on the topic that is not contained in the written material.
