Course_thumb Dynamic Rock Cycle Course
Earth Science Education Unit (ESEU)

Try a series of ‘hands-on’ activities experimenting on and simulating the processes involved in the rock cycle. Use the integrating model of the rock cycle as a means of encountering common rocks and Earth-processes in a practical, investigative way. Please contact ESEU to arrange a convenient date and time for this NO FEE workshop; travel and sundry expenses are the only costs incurred.

Stated learning outcomes for this course

Dynamic Rock Cycle

The workshop and its activities provide the following outcomes:

  • identification and terminology of rock cycle products, including soils, sediments and rocks;
  • knowledge and understanding about rock cycle processes and timescales, including weathering, erosion/transportation, deposition, compaction/cementation, metamorphism, melting, crystallisation, extrusion and deformation;
  • methods of teaching the abstract concept of the rock cycle, using a range of teaching approaches;
  • introduction to a range of Earth science laboratory activities, from simple modelling to more complex investigations;
  • approaches to activities designed to develop the thinking and investigational skills of pupils;
  • links between laboratory models and planetary processes, some of which are locally active and therefore relevant to pupils;
  • an integrated overview of the geological Earth science commonly taught to 11 – 14 year olds, based on the National Curriculum for Science (2007).
