I did not expect my students to be as excited about this story as they were. It follows the super hero "Captain Igneous" through the rock cycle, and offers definitions for the complex science words that go along with the rock cycle. After the story I used the pictures from the story and had students retell what happened to captain igneous while building the rock cycle with those pictures on a poster board. I then had the students use play dough to reenact the rock cycle. You would think it was Christmas with how happy they were to mold that play dough All of that in 20 minutes, I would say that is a pretty fun and simple way to introduce the rock cycle to those 6 and 7 year olds!
I'm just an Elementary Nerd sharing my excitement for the classroom!
