Rocks! Calling all Rock Experts!

  • Today we will be learning about the three main rock groups.
  • Watch Dr Norbury’s video.
  • Then use the link below to complete the ‘What is a Rock?’ guide on BBC bitesize. Make sure you read the information and complete the quiz.
  • Work through the Powerpoint below.
  • Create a poster (this can be done in your book over a double or single page spread), quiz or presentation to show your knowledge and understanding of the three rock groups. If you are doing a presentation show your notes and planning in your home learning book. You can film your presentation but this is not necessary.
  • I have put some examples of posters below to show you different ways to present your work.

What are the rocks? Help Dr N work out the names of the rocks in the photos.
