Exeter-Milligan Update; 5th Grade Rocks

Fifth Grade News
By Brooke Soukup, E-M 5th grade Instructor

Exeter-Milligan’s 5th grade class has been learning about our Earth. We discussed the rock cycle, the different kinds of rocks, and then created our own rocks.  We first laid out our sediments, which were different colored starburst minis, and then pushed them together to create our sedimentary rock.  Next, I microwaved our sedimentary rocks to show them changing into igneous rocks.  Finally, we made a second sedimentary rock and put heat and pressure on it to create our metamorphic rock.  The picture shows Kierra Papik and Landen Soice creating and documenting their sedimentary rock.
