Keeping Things Rolling: Rocks & Landforms

This unit starts by looking at the three main types of rocks and how they are formed. Students will become geologists and use dichotomous keys on their ipads to uncover mystery rocks. Following, we'll create topographic and profile maps and learn how to read a map including understanding contour lines and various map symbols. We'll need to take a month break for January's Green & Healthy Curriculum but then we'll be sure to finish up with our study using stream tables to simulate the formation of many different types of landforms caused by erosion and deposition.
