 We have revealed the boxes and boxes of rocks in our room, cleverly disguised all these months, now to be released from their cardboard castles. We have distinguished our rocks as those into thrice distinctions: Those Born of FIRE- Igneous.   Those Born of Deposition-sedimentary AND Those Born of Heat and Pressure-Metamorphic.    TRY THIS INTERACTIVE SITE

Rocks!!!! 2

More options and pictures are now up. Can you tell I have a hard time keeping things the same all the time? Here are links to ROCKS & Minerals  chapter 11 sites.
1.Learn the Rock cycle, and the three types of rocks.
2.Quick general reading 
3.Review reading/questions
4.Online practice tests

Thats good for now- USE THESE, they......ROCK.


We opened the rock case today. Complete with singing angels as the doors opened our minds to the wonders of the terrestrial world. Rocks are the Earth, no rocks, no ground, no world to live on. No soil to create from weathering the rocks, no food to grow in the soil-hydroponics would not work too well for 6+billion people(ex:Disney World cafeteria with hydroponics)
What do rocks do for you? where you live, what you travel in, what you eat, what you wear, what you entertain yourself with(tv's, mp3 players, mobile devices), what you listen to(instruments), what you listen with(headphones), the internet(cable, computers, phones), and millions of other places.

Get ready because here we go.
