Quick Facts

The Big Question!

What are the three rock types and how are they formed?

When you have finished everything, choose a partner to make a poster with. The poster should include the three types or Rocks and how each is formed. Also include at least one example of each rock and either draw or print out pictures. After you have finished your poster, on the back, write which rock type is your favorite and why. Make sure your partner writes their favorite rock type and why on the back as well. Have fun coloring, and remember, YOU ROCK!
