Roger the Rock Student Worksheet

Your assignment: Create a children’s story about Roger the Rock.

Roger is a rock that has been a part of the rock cycle for millions of years. Your job is to tell Roger’s story. You must describe how Roger was “born” and at least three transitions that occurred during Roger’s life. (For example, changing from igneous to sedimentary, sedimentary to metamorphic, and metamorphic to igneous.)

Your grade will be based on in-class work, the accuracy of your information, creativity, and neatness/effort. This should be a story appropriate for a children’s book (think back to 2nd grade here!), including pictures.

To earn an “A”, you need to include many details-the names of specific rock types, descriptions about what causes the changes to occur, etc.

This project will be due on: ________________________________
