Take out lined paper to prepare the Cornell notes, remember to write the sections and titles on the left side on the paper and the notes on the right. Before you start this activity, write down what you already know about rocks and the rock cycle, if you do not recall or know anything about rocks write what you would like to learn about them. You may write in bullet points or sentences.
Now that you have written down some background information and/or questions, you will be going to Kids Love Rocks, and reading the article called Types of Rocks and watching the short video that is provided. Take notes and write down important vocabulary words and feel free to draw pictures to help you identify the types of rocks. Link: https://kidsloverocks.com/types-of-rock
Now that you are able to identify types of rocks and some facts about them, head over to National Geographic to read an article about The Rock Cycle. Again, take notes and write down important vocabulary words and draw pictures if you would like to. After reading the article, you will be watching a Bill Nye video all about The Rock Cycle. While watching the video, jot down notes and at the end write a five sentence summary on what you learned in the video (on a separate piece of paper).

Great job on watching the videos and reading the articles! Now it is time to put your knowledge to the test!
You will be drawing out the rock cycle and labeling all the important parts. Use your notes and your textbook to help you draw the cycle correctly and make sure you are able to identify all parts and pieces. Once you are finished with the cycle, feel free to add color and check with me to make sure everything is correct.
