The initial driving question for this unit is: "How does the definition of the rock cycle support the title the author chose for the chapter, “Earth’s Changing Surface: Rocks and Minerals”?" and students should continue to focus on Chapter 2. Specifically, they should closely read the sections on metamorphic rocks and igneous rocks for this day's lesson. Special Materials: Students will need a copy of "Earth's Changing Surface: Rocks and Minerals" (included in this lesson).
