Metamorphic rock has undergone a change through the forces of heat and pressure. Because these rocks began as either igneous or sedimentary rock, metamorphic rock is normally studied last. After all three types of rocks have been studied, it’s a perfect time to formally introduce the rock cycle.
Recommended living books for a study of the rock cycle:
- The Rock Factory: The Story About the Rock Cycle
- Rocks: Hard, Soft, Smooth, and Rough (Amazing Science (Picture Window))
As always, I love to hear when you use the free printables from The Notebooking Fairy in your homeschool. If you send me photos, I will feature you in a Show Off post.
