|Demonstrating the Rock Cycle|
We have studied the rock cycle before,
|Volcanoes and Igneous Rocks Pop-Up Book|
as well as igneous rocks specifically, so I began by reviewing this with them.
Handbook of Nature Study blog's Outdoor Hour study was Granite and other Igneous rocks, we decided to do a formal nature study.
We speculated that the pink was some rose quartz because it was so shiny, but that the white and gray were feldspar because they were less crystal-like.
