Student and teacher friendly books

The Science Made EZ books are easier to use than any other Earth Science program available.

Your students can work through the science books with minimal, to no help, from you. This gives you time for other things you need to do in your busy life.

Each chapter in this book is about a specific topic related to metamorphic rocks. Your students will enjoy their science lessons when each chapter includes a science experiment.

Sample chapters

  • Regional Metamorphism occurs over large regions when crustal plates collide.
  • Dynamic Metamorphism occurs in subduction zones. The subducting plate melts, creating metamorphic rocks around the molten rock.
  • Marble is a metamorphic rock that was originally limestone.

Designed for all ages of students

This series of books is designed for all ages of students. If you are teaching a group with multiple ages and reading abilities, this is the series for you. 

You can have students work alone or together as they read the information in each chapter. Students can then do the experiments individually or together.

Sample experiments

  • Rock Hard Dough Art demonstrates how high heat changes the dough.
  • Layered Bread shows how pressure compresses sedimentary as the layers in the oceans deepen.
  • A Hot Time for Rocks examines the effect of heat on different materials.

Formation of metamorphic rocks

Metamorphic rocks change from igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks under extreme pressure. The new metamorphic rocks form without melting. The minerals in these metamorphic rocks are stable at higher heat and pressures.
