L.O. Can I explore different types of rock families and carry out simple, practical activities?
There are three main types of rocks: igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic.
Watch the video here: www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z9bbkqt/articles/zsgkdmn
Igneous rocks are formed when magma cools on the Earth's surface.
Watch the video below that shows the rock cycle. You are learning HOW igneous rock is formed NOT how to melt chocolate.
We were going to make sedimentary sandwiches and igneous rocks in class but due to us self-isolating we are unable to do this! The instructions are attached below and it would be great if you and a grown up can have a go at each one so you can see how rocks are formed. If you can do the experiments then please take pictures and send them to us!
Watch the rock song. Write a definition of all 3 types of rocks.
Finally, either write down how each rock is formed or explain it to a grown up at home.
