Cut the Snickers bar in half and you see an example of a sedimentary rock.  Smash the Snickers bar in a baggie and you have an example of a metamorphic rock". Melt the Snickers bar in the microwave and you have a example of an  Igneous rock.--Oo saving this for later this year

Give your student's a break from traditional notes and have them actively engaged for a change! These doodle notes encourage students to use creativity and both hemispheres of their brain. This rock cycle doodle note includes notes about how igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks are formed along with examples of each type. I have also included short notes on how sediments are formed including definitions for weathering, erosion, deposition, compaction, and cementation.
