Rock Your State! In-class work
w Working with 2-3 others, make a list of all the kinds of rocks and sediments found in the states you researched.
w Create a master list (using sticky notes) of all the rocks/sediments represented for all the states in your group.
w For each item on the list, categorize it as a sediment, igneous rock, sedimentary rock, or metamorphic rock.
w For each type of rock (ig, sed, meta), subdivide the group into smaller sub-classifications.
w Logically organize the information your research reveals about the sub-classifications of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks; then, apply it to the description of hand samples.
