A Trip Around the Rock Cycle

This week's studies in geology involve the rock cycle.  In addition to actual metamorphic, igneous, and sedimentary rock specimens we have on our science shelf we created a model of the rock cycle.  This rock cycle model consisted of a series of dice that allowed us to travel millions of years in just a couple of minutes to see the endless ways a rock can change throughout the centuries.  Some students have even been inspired to create narrative writings all about their experience changing from one rock to another!
