The Rock Cycle

We are always looking for ways of making our lessons more exciting and accessible to the pupils, doing something different in a different way to make a difference. Enterprising teaching and learning by any other name. Here I offer a lesson that I have taught to a low ability year 7. The topic was ‘The Rock Cycle’ and I wanted to show how through the application of heat and pressure you could change the structure of the rocks (i.e. how metamorphic rock is formed). This is a difficult concept for some pupils to grasp. So what better way to demonstrate this concept than by making CHEESE TOASTIES. Please have a go at teaching the lesson and make a difference through doing something different in a different way.

This lesson considers the main rock types and students complete and make a comparison pyramid to display in the classroom or in their books. Students then examine the rock cycle and have a variety of key terms and phrases to include in how rocks change shape and state as they journey through the cycle. There is also a homework task to consolidate learning.
