Here is a great addition to your Earth Science unit. After learning about the different ways that rocks can change, have students write two short stories from the point of view of two different rocks – Fast Freddy (who changes very fast) and Slow Sammy (who changes very slow). Stop by my blog – Raki’s Rad Resources and find these Free Brainstorming & Drafting Sheets to take your students through the process.
Pretend You’re a Rock and Write a Story
