Rock Cycle Animation and Mining “Hook”

This animation illustrates and quizzes students on the different processes that are part of the rock cycle and would be useful as an introduction or  review tool for teaching this cycle.

“Hook” for a placed base lesson on Pebble Mine.

National Geographic video

I would use this video as a way to introduce students to the issues surrounding the Pebble Mine. Students would list benefits and drawbacks of the mine and identify stakeholders in the issue. For my students in Utah, I would have them further research mineral deposits in Utah and identify benefits and drawbacks to resource extraction. This would be a good way to begin a role play activity to debate a mining proposal.
