This activity allows students to practice what they know about Igneous, Sedimentary, and Metamorphic rocks. At each cache, students will use a combination of picture clues and rock specimens to answer questions. Some caches will contain specimens that students will use to determine which description correlates to that specimen.  Other caches require students to answer questions about a type of rock and which processes are required to change its properties.

Suggested Cache Contents

Cache 1: Sedimentary Rock Specimen

Cache 2: Metamorphic Rock Specimen

Cache 3: Igneous Rock Specimen

Cache 4: Vocabulary Cards

Cache 5: Rock Pictures
