Rock Cycle: An Interactive Exploration Through Geologic Time Kit #430

The focus of this activity is helping students attain a better understanding of the rock cycle as a series of ongoing geologic processes that constantly reshape the earth around us and beneath our feet. This activity engages the students through an active learning alternative to the traditional passive methods of studying the rock cycle. Students first imagine themselves as bits of earth material moving through eight different earth process stages. After a set period of time, students analyze the unique pattern of their movement between these stages, calculate geologic time and illustrate their pattern by constructing a rock cycle diagram based on their own experiences. This kit is complete for 32 students and is reusable.
