Rock cycle songs

[email protected] - --6th grade science - T.Copas/N.Holder- Students learn the formation processes of the three main categories of rocks in the rock cycle through movement, song, and dance. They also learn the differences in weathering, erosion, and deposition through the "Weathering" song and dance movements.

Weathering song

Weathering song

  • "Wea-ther-ing! (pause) Ero-sion! (pause) De-po-si-tion!" repeatedly. For weathering, students will stick out three fingers on each hand to form W's. Rhythmically, they will slam their W's together to represent the breaking of rocks. During the erosion portion of the chant, instruct students to move their hands in a sideways wave motion, similar to a hula dancer. If your classroom has enough room, allow students to slide sideways to model the movement of erosion. Finally, when students chant "De-po-si-tion," they should make a downward motion with their hands and kneel to the ground, showing how particles eventually deposit or stop.
