SE Rock Cycle Textbook by Myrna Martin
Student and Teacher Friendly Books
Science Made EZ textbooks make learning fun and easy for you and your students.
The science textbooks in this series are for older students getting ready for college or students who want to learn more about the rock cycle.
Students often work through their textbooks without additional help from their teachers. This saves you a lot of time during your busy day.
Why the Rock Cycle textbook is easy to use
Each chapter contains written information, a quiz, and an experiment about the rock cycle. The glossary, contains definitions of unfamiliar science words, and the Answer Key is for students to check to see if their answers to the quizzes is correct.
The written information in each chapter does not overwhelm students like larger textbooks that cover multiple topics in each chapter.
The Rock Cycle textbook is divided into 16 chapters. It will take only a few minues of your time to read the chapter summary, look at the pictures, and determine the materials needed to do the experiment in each chapter.
- Pyroclastic Rocks form when gases expand in molten rock creating volcanic eruptions.
- Clastic Rocks consist of small and large chunks of older rock that broke off due to weathering.
- Organic Rocks were created from materials produced by living organisms. Coral reefs, chalk, and coal are examples of organic rocks.
Three families of rocks
The rock cycle consists of three major families of rocks. Igneous rocks form when molten rock cools and solidifies into solid rock. Sedimentary rocks form when sediments turn to stone through compaction and cementation. Metamorphic rocks recrystallize due to heat and pressure without melting.
- Pressing Layers
- Sand Slides
- Petroglyphs and Pictographs
Your students can look over the experiments in each chapter and gather the materials they will need. They will find most of the materials listed in each experiment around your home or at a nearby store.
