"This Planet Really Rocks" Lesson!! The students started off by making an sedimentary rock with shavings from a crayon. They pressed on the crayon sediment with their hands just as the pressure from water would make the sedimentary rock form. Then they turned that rock into a metamorphic rock by hammering it between two boards just as a metamorphic rock would be formed by being buried in the Earth's surface. Students had to write a statement in their learning logs that gave a real world explanation of how a sedimentary and metamorphic rock would form.
