This is a fun activity to include in your rock cycle unit! It is simple to do and the kids love it. I use this activity primarily with fourth graders but it will work with the Next Generation Science Standards for second and fourth grade. If you teach the rock cycle this lesson is a proven winner no matter which grade you teach!
You will need:
Check out the "rocks" in the toaster oven.

This is a fun summer activity for families too. A few Starburst can chase away the clouds on a rainy summer day!
