Introduction

Introduction

Have you ever picked up a rock and wondered where it came from or how long it’s been on earth? Did you know that rocks cycle through the earth?

Today we are going to learn about how rocks cycle through the earth and different types of rocks.


Materials

Materials

  • The Rock Factory by Jacqui Bailey

  • Sticky Notes

  • Clip Board

  • Pencil

  • Science Notebook

  • Computer with Internet Access


Before reading

Before Reading

Use your Science Notebook to review concepts discussed previously about rocks and the rock cycle.

Before reading, discuss with a partner information you know about rocks and where they come from.

While we read our text today, we are going to be hearing some words. Think about the words below and write down what you know about each word, or what you think the word means.

  • Mantle

  • Granite

  • Pressure

During Reading

  • Purpose: Summarize New Information:

Non- fiction texts provide new facts that we may not already know. Today, you will write a summary of the cycle a rock travels through. To hit this target you need to look for key words or phrases that will help us create a descriptive summary. Therefore, while we read today, your job is to write down a few important key words or phrases that will help us to create our summary after we finish reading the text. We will keep these sticky notes on a clip board.


During reading1

  • Looking at the cover what do you think the topic of this book is? Place one word on a sticky note that summarizes the topic of our book. Then place it on your clip board.

During Reading

  • While we read pages 2-7 use sticky notes to write down 3-4 words or phrases that you think are important to understanding how rocks are formed.


During reading2

During Reading

As we continue reading pages 8-13, jot down a few more words or phrases on new sticky notes that you think are important to understanding the story. We will then share these words with your talk partner.

Turn to your talk partner and discuss the words you wrote on your sticky note. Why did you choose to write down these words or phrases?

During Reading

As you continue reading, continue to jot down words on a new sticky note that you think are important to understanding the story. We will then share these words with your talk partner.


After reading

After Reading

  • Then take out your Science Journal and a pencil.

Place all of your sticky notes in sequential order.

  • Create a paragraph using the words you wrote on your sticky notes to explain how a rock travels through a cycle over time.


Beyond reading

  • Record any questions you may still have about the rock cycle beneath your summary paragraph.

Beyond Reading

Click on the following links to learn more about the rock cycle to answer any questions you may still have about the rock cycle. Be on the look out for three different types of rock you learned about from these websites and examples of each type of rock. Record new facts learned in your Science Notebook.

Rock Cycle Song(Sing to the tune of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat")

SEDIMENTARY rockHas been formed in layersOften found near water sourcesWith fossils from decayers

Then there's IGNEOUS rockHere since Earth was bornMolten Lava, cooled and hardenedThat's how it is formed

These two types of rocksCan also be transformedWith pressure, heat and chemicalsMETAMORPHIC they'll become.

Beyond reading2

Beyond Reading

Using the information you learned from today’s reading and research, create your own song about the rock cycle. You can choose from the tune of :

Mary Had a Little Lamb

The Itsy Bitsy Spider

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star

Jingle Bells

In your song, be sure to include the three different types of rocks and their process of transforming.

  • If there is one copy of The Rock Cycle per student, the teacher may want to implement the lesson in small groups/guided reading groups if possible. The text is non-fiction and provides an abundance of information.

  • Some students may need sections of the text re-read varying upon their reading ability. The re-reading text will enhance student’s ability to comprehend text, and confirm their word choices for their written summaries.

  • The teacher may want to revisit some of the websites for factual information on specific types of rocks for the culminating activity of The Changing Earth, or the teacher may have students record information on a specific type of rock: Metamorphic, Igneous, or Sedimentary to support the culminating activity further on in the unit.
