  a) Research your rock types before coming to class,
  b) Bring a wi-fi laptop or your textbook, or
  c) Both!


By the end of today's class, you should be able to do the following:


w In the following groups, compile a list of all the rock and sediment types represented in the states the group members studied for "Rock Your State!"

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.
