Earth: Deposition and Lithification

Geology geniuses analyze sediment samples with a hand lens and sort according to physical characteristics. They also learn about the processes of cementation, compaction, and lithification within the rock cycle. The lesson plan is thoroughly written and depicts steps of the investigation to further your understanding of how to teach it. You may want to create a lab sheet to go along with the lesson as the three handouts mentioned in the materials list are not part of the document.
