A unit study about rocks can be a fascinating, hands-on adventure. This rocks learning activity for kids will explore different types of rocks and rock cycles.
This learning activity explores the rock types and the processes that cause change in them.
The landing page for the contributor’s website contains the text for this unit study.
Child-friendly, informative videos offer a closer look at what the text describes. You’ll want to supervise your child during this portion as the videos are sources from YouTube.
The next portion of this learning activity is the free printable rocks pack.
A poster of the rock cycle offers a clear visualization of how the cycle works. Your child will refer to this poster throughout the completion of their worksheets.
The “types of rocks” worksheet lists all the three main types and their characteristics. Your child will answer the questions on the sheet using that information.
A “rock report” page will prompt your child to choose a rock for this project. They will draw a picture of their rock and list facts about it.
These and several other pages will complete your rocks unit study.
