Geology Rocks!

November 20, 2014

The 8th Grade Science students are currently learning about the Rock Cycle. Throughout this unit the students have dug into the process of how different rocks are formed.  They have learned that sedimentary rocks are formed from sediments that have been compacted and cemented together.  Igneous rocks form when lava or magma cools and hardens.  Metamorphic rocks form when other rocks change into different rocks due to heat and pressure.  In their Rock Cycle Stop-Motion iMovie students explain the process of how these types of rocks form and how they are always changing due to Earth's powerful forces.
