Metamorphic Rocks Book
Student and teacher friendly books
The Ring of Fire Science books are easier to use than any other Earth Science program available. Our rock cycle books are designed for students who can read at a minimum 5th grade level.
Your students can work through the science books with minimal help from their teachers. 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.
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 are fascinating for all ages of students. If you are teaching a group with multiple ages and reading abilities you might have them read the information together. Students can also do the activities individually or with another student.
- 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.
