The life of a rock is hard.  It seems that rocks lay around all day sunning, bathing or drinking lemonade.  But in reality they are constantly moving around the earth being broken, crushed, ground to a dust, buried, squashed with the weight of mountains, and even melted.

Who knew the life of a rock was so hard?

A rocky life takes kids on a journey through the life of a rock in the rock cycle.  In this lesson we will:

  • Explore how rocks are formed (the yummy way!)
  • Learn about the three types of rocks
  • Take a trip through the rock cycle

Time to Complete
10 minutes prep, 30+ minutes cookie baking, 15+ minutes game
