Science Week of 9/24

6.ESS.3: Igneous, Metamorphic and Sedimentary rocks form in different ways.
This week students will use the unique characteristics of sedimentary rocks to identify and classify sendimentay rocks. Students will observe samples and infer how they may have formed, as well as consider the environment these rocks formed in. They will also be introduced to clastic, chemical and organic types of sedimentary rock and compare them with each other. There will be a quiz on Wednesday over IGNEOUS ROCKS.
