For the remainder of the second six weeks we will be studying the characteristics of sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous rocks.  The text reference for rocks is Chapter 10.  Emphasis will be on the rock cycle and its specific processes of sedimentation, compaction, melting, erosion and weathering which allows rocks to change from one type to another.  Students will complete a lab activity which will allow them to use the information about rock characteristics to identify specific rocks provided in class. My classes will have a geologist speaking to them on Monday, October 16, to give them a better grasp of the science of geology and help them to distinguish one rock type from another.
