There are three types of rocks. In this class, students will look at the rock cycle and the formation of the three types of rocks. Students will investigate how igneous rocks form from lava and how the crystal size is related to the time of cooling. Sedimentary rocks form from sediments such as mud and sand and metamorphic rocks form from heat and pressure. Students will see how these processes go into forming sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. This class is aimed at students in Years 7 - 9 who want to feel confident on rocks!#
