Rock Cycle Resource from Mineralogical Society of America

This site with simple, easily interpreted diagrams of the rock cycle and the different types of rocks that form claims to be “The BEST Place to Learn about Rocks and Minerals.” Having not seen all the places one can learn about the rock cycle, and assuming the BEST place would be looking into a volcano, I cannot validate this claim, but it is great site for kids to use in their quest to understand earth science!

As a teacher I would set up learning centers and the group that is at the computers would have the assignment of using this site to describe how each type of rock forms and list three characteristics unique to the specific type.
