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. For this lesson, students should closely read page 14 of the text and describe connections and relationships between the ways rocks change. Special Materials: Students will need a copy of the article, "Earth's Changing Surface: Rocks and Minerals" (included in this lesson).
