On Tuesday 30th April, during a Geography lesson,
Senior 1 student conducted an experiment about the rock cycle. From home they
brought broken crayons and shredded them with a grater. At this point sediments
were formed. Then, they moved on to form sedimentary rocks by pressing the
shredded crayons together. Afterwards, they created the metamorphic rocks by
pressing and using some heat. Finally, students created igneous rock by melting
the shredded crayons and then waiting for the ‘rock’ to cool down. This was a hands-on
lesson where students participated and learned about the rock cycle.
