Rock Cycle Entry

Rock Cycle Journey   is a lesson in a series of lessons on mountain building, in this lesson students learn about the rock cycle by playing a game of rock cycle dice.  A follow up to the game activity students are asked to create a comic strip of their journeys through the rock cycle. When I have students play I keep them going until everyone in class as been each type of rock at least once. The games give students an understanding of not only the rock cycle, but how long it can take a rock to transform.
