This activity is perfect for a review of the rock cycle, but when done in its entirety is a simulation of the rock cycle! Good for learning it for the first time (for 3rd graders) or reviewing concepts and vocabulary (4th grade, 5th grade). Students can also gain plenty of practice using science vocabulary.

In Design Your Own Experiment: Fortune Fish, students design and conduct their own experiment to test why the Fortune Fish moves when it is in their hand. This lab is a good beginning of the year activity, but it can really be done at any time. I use it with a unit on scientific inquiry to get my students more comfortable with the scientific method. This lab is a .docx, and you are welcome to modify to fit the needs of your students! $
