Sedimentary Rocks

Sedimentary rocks are the building blocks of this geology lesson. In it, learners discover what sedimentary rocks are and how they form. They understand the differences between the major sedimentary rock varieties and learn what types of environments they come from. A terrific in-class inquiry is done, and a fine lab sheet is embedded in the plan to guide student learning. These lessons from the Illinois State Museum are top-notch!

I just transferred mid-year to an art teacher position; it has been more than 15 years since I taught art. I needed some quick ideas to get started. Thank you Lesson Planet!
