Grouping and Classifying

GROUPING AND CLASSIFYING ROCKS - Simon's Challenge

SEDIMENTARY, METAMORPHIC OR IGNEOUS in Hawthorn Class?

We have observed and analysed cakes and chocolates to investigate if they resemble rocks which are sedimentary - have bits of rock merged together, metamorphic - layers of rock squashed down or changed by heat or igneous rocks which have been melted and are pitted with air holes.

What do you think about a Mars Bar? Sedimentary or metamorphic?

What do you think about Mr Kipling's Angel Slice. Metamorphic or igneous?

What do you think about Malteasers. Igneous or sedimentary?

Following on from grouping rocks, we used a selection of cakes and chocolate to compare the features of igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks.

In Year 3 we used the easi-scopes and iPads to examine a collection of rocks.
