Comments and Teaching Tips given for Minerals 4 Kids Comment on this resource

Aug 24, 2007 by Melissa Ward, MSU Student
This website was so fun to look at and it could be so much fun for students to use in a classroom. The site is great for teachers to explain to their class how the rock cycle works. The pictures help students to see the circle the rock cycle creates. I would use this site in a powerpoint presentation. This information and the picture of the rock cycle is easy to follow and great for the students to see the difference of each rock. The information that is given in the site is easy to follow and provides a detailed illustration of how a rock cycle works. I also liked the engaging questions at the end that ask the student how to tell one rock from another.
