3. Students apply a wide range of strategies
to comprehend, interpret, evaluate, and
appreciate texts. They draw on their prior
experience, their interactions with other
readers and writers, their knowledge of
word meaning and of other texts, their
word identification strategies, and their
understanding of textual features (e.g.,
sound-letter correspondence, sentence
structure, context, graphics).

RESOURCES/MATERIALS/SETTING, AND GROUPS


1. McDougal Littell. (2005). Earths Surface. Houton Mifflin Company. Evanston, IL.
Section 3.4: Metamorphic rocks form as existing rocks change, pg. 96-101
2. 1 Igneous (granite), 1 sedimentary (conglomerate), 1 metamorphic rocks (marble)
3. Metamorphic Rocks Anticipation Guide
4. Metamorphic Rocks Content to Know: Reading Guide
5. Metamorphic Rocks Content to Know: Teacher Guide
MOTIVATION Opening (Motivation/Anticipatory Set/Hook/Building or Activating Schema):
So far you all have read about what types of rocks in the rock cycle? (allow response time)
Today we start reading about metamorphic rocks. Before we begin however, I would like you
all to first make some hypothesis and these 3 rocks I have here. Based on what you have
learned so far hypothesize which of the rocks presented is a: igneous, sedimentary, or
metamorphic rocks.

PROCEDURES OF THE LESSON


1. Pass out the Metamorphic Rocks: Anticipation Guide. Explain rationale of anticipation
guides use for self-monitor learning; what they previously believed before learning, and what
the end result of their learning is. By the end of unit they should be better able to identify the
rocks, and re-visit their assumptions to fill out the Metamorphic Rocks: Post Study.
3mins

2. Once students have completed their anticipation guides, post the Metamorphic Rock:
Unit Objectives. Explain that you wish for them to be clear on what they are expected to learn.
Write the date next to this lessons learning objectives:
1. Relate content literature, reading guides, diagrams and exploration, to reference and study content

3. Once the unit objectives are shared pass out the Metamorphic Rocks Content to Know
(Reading Guide). Explain that the sheet has all the important points they should learn, and will
be used as a reading guide for taking notes. Explain that it can help them practice for
independent study skills. Explain that because it is practice that the lesson will be teacher
guided.
4. Begin reading Section 3.4: Metamorphic rocks form as existing rocks change, pg. 96.
Using the Metamorphic Rocks Content to Know: Teacher Guide to model a think aloud;
stopping at key points indicated by key words, subheadings, diagrams, etc Explain the
importance of writing the page # for future reference and rechecking accuracy.

ACCOMMODATION/MODIFICATION/DIFFERENTIATION
To be addressed as the need arises.
Continue reading and notes the next lesson if more time is necessary
Closure:
We will use the reading guide as one of our study references as we move through the unit.
Our next class will create another study reference

ANTICIPATION GUIDE
Based on what you have learned so far hypothesize which of the rocks presented is a(n): igneous, sedimentary, or
metamorphic rocks. Explain what characteristic features of each rock: texture, color, durability, etc, indicate the
type of rock formation which occurred.

POST STUDY
Based on what you have additionally learned, now reexamine your hypothesis on identifying igneous, sedimentary,
or metamorphic rocks. You may refer to your notes to support your hypothesis. Explain what characteristic features
of each rock: texture, color, durability, etc, indicate the type of rock formation which occurred.

Metamorphic Rocks
Content to Know:

TEACHER GUIDE
1. 2 conditions change rock into metamorphic rocks
(pg. 96, subheading: Heat and pressure change rocks,
Heat and pressure change rocks
2. There are 3 possible parent rocks of metamorphic rock
(pg. 96, subheading: Heat and pressure change rocks, paragraph 2)
Igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rock
3. A metamorphic rock is similar and different to an igneous rock
(pg. 97, paragraph 1)
They are similar because they both change with heat
They are different because metamorphic rock only needs heat to change, but once it melts
it is no longer a metamorphic rock, it becomes an igneous rocks
4. A metamorphic rock similar and different from a sedimentary rock
(pg. 97, paragraph 1, and diagram: How Rocks Change, #1)
They are both similar because they both undergo pressure
They are different because sedimentary rock forms when rocks and minerals are
weathered are pressed and layered near the earths surface, but metamorphic rock forms
deeper within the earth and through pressure and heat the rocks change and the minerals
recrystallize
5. When a rock is exposed to heat and pressure the minerals within change
(pg. 97, paragraph 2)
Recrystallization; mineral atoms bonds break, and join bonds differently
6. 2 results may occur through recrystallization
(pg. 97, paragraph 2)
Mineral crystals can grow larger as more atoms join the crystal structure
Old crystals Bigger crystals
Mineral atoms can combine in different ways forming new minerals
Old crystals New minerals

7. A rocks metamorphosis becomes more extreme the deeper it gets in the earth.
(pg. 97-99, diagram: How Rocks Change,
subheading; Metamorphic changes occur over large and small areas,
and diagram; Metamorphic Changes)
Rocks change the deeper they are pushed into the earths crust because there heat and
pressure is increased. The deeper the rock is pushed the greater changes it continues to
go through; depth creates added heat (closer to the core) and pressure (more rocks
layered from above)
8. The formation conditions which cause larger scale metamorphic changes
(pg. 98-99, subheading; Metamorphic changes occur over large and small areas,
and diagram; Metamorphic Changes)
When rocks are exposed to both heat and pressure
9. The formation conditions which cause smaller scale metamorphic changes
(pg. 98-99, subheading; Metamorphic changes occur over large and small areas,
and diagram; Metamorphic Changes)
When rocks are only exposed to 1 condition; either pressure or heat
10. When rocks contain more than 1 mineral they have a banded look
(pg.100, subheading; Most metamorphic rocks develop bands of minerals)
Foliation; the minerals are squashed together in wavy or flat parallel bands, which split
easily into leaflike sheets
11. Nonfoliated rocks are stronger than foliated rocks
(pg.100-01 subheading; Most metamorphic rocks develop bands of minerals)
Nonfoliated consist of mainly of 1 mineral, so it is not layered, and does not break off
easily into leaflike sheets
