This week’s learning targets in science:
- Explain and diagram the external and internal processes of the rock cycle (e.g. weathering and erosion, sedimentation, compaction, heating, re-crystallization, resurfacing due to forces that drive plate motion.
- Explain how the formation of sedimentary rocks depends on weathering and erosion.
- Explain how heating and cooling in the mantle layer leads to the formation of metamorphic rock and some igneous rocks
- Explain that the amount of matter remains constant while being recycled through the rock cycle
Have a great week!
