Rocks Year 8 Topic- 5 full lessons (KS3 8H)

Rocks Year 8 Topic- 5 full lessons (KS3 8H)

This bundle is sufficient to teach Year 8 students the Key Stage 3 National Curriculum required learning on Rocks. The bundle includes five full lesson PowerPoints (containing equipment lists for suggested practicals) plus associated resources. Suggested teaching order: The Rock Cycle, Rocks and their Uses, Igneous and Metamorphic, Weathering and Erosion, Materials in the Earth. In theory there should be a lesson 8Hd (on Sedimentary Rocks) but the required learning for this is already covered in the Rock Cycle intro lesson.
