Comments and Teaching Tips given for Metamorphic Rocks Comment on this resource

Dec 4, 2004 by Barb Peterson, MSU geo305
This is an excellent tutorial for students who are learning about metamorphic rocks. This site also has tutorials on sedementary and igneous rocks as well. It would be a great tool to use in the classroom for students who need a higher level of learning than the text book offers. It has questions, pictures and diagrams of rocks and their formation. This site would fulfill Minnesota's Science Academic standard grade 8 Strand III Earth and Space Science, A. Earth Structure and Processes, The student will identify Earth's composition and structure. Benchmarks 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6.
