Stories in Stone
Description: This "gem" of a GEMS guide features exciting earth science activities that deepen student understanding of the processes that form igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks. Students classify rock and mineral samples and are challenged to classify "mystery rocks." They observe formations of salt crystals and make models of crystal shapes. A dynamic crystallization experiment models processes in the formation of igneous rocks. Unique clay modeling activities with geological narratives ("stories in stone") provide students with "hands-on" insight into the rock cycle and plate tectonics.
