Lesson

The Terrarium: Rock On!

Students will use their terrariums as they are introduced to the rock cycle in the geosphere. They will explore videos and pictorial representations, and examine its relationship to the water cycle in the hydrosphere and possible impacts upon living things in the biosphere. They will focus on weathering and erosion through questions, observation, experimenting and recording data in their science notebooks.
