Week of January 30th

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!
