Exploring How Rocks Are Formed

These lessons produced by the Illinois State Museum are quite good. In this one, third and fourth graders are introduced to the three basic types of rocks: igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. They perform activities which help them understand how these rocks are formed, and how different they are from each other. There are terrific hands-on tasks, extension activities, and assessment ideas as well. Highly recommended!
