Rock Formations in Geography
Students are studying the diverse range of rocks and rock formations in Geography
Year 10 Geography students are currently studying the diverse range of rocks and rock formations. Students studied a range of rocks which included volcanic lava from Iceland and Mount Etna in Sicily along with rose quartz, peacock ore, and iron pyrite, more commonly referred to as ‘fool’s gold.’ They researched each rock and had to identify whether the rocks were examples of igneous, metamorphic or sedimentary rocks. Students thoroughly enjoyed the practical aspect of this lesson and look forward to similar activities in the near future.
