Ride the Rock Cycle

Today we did a rock cycle activity that works very well with middle school students.  It is somewhat like an activity from Project Wet on the water cycle.  Students go to different stations like: earth's interior, river, mountain etc.  and the roll a die that tells them where to go next.  Sometimes they stay at a station for a long time.  I had one student that was at the earth's interior station for three turns and he told me that it felt like he had been there a million years.  I said, "now you have the idea."  This activity can be found at

You will need to scroll down to the "R's" to get to Ride the Rock Cycle.
