A rock deep within the Earth experiences extreme temperature and pressure. After a long period of time it becomes which rock?
In the Starburst Lab, we made models of all types of rocks. Which type of rock is able to turn into a metamorphic rock?
Rocks and sediment change as they move through the rock cycle. Which change involves turning into melting?
What must happen to a metamorphic rock before it becomes a sedimentary rock rock?
A geologist is studying three layers of sedimentary rock in an area. The layers have not shifted from their original positions. The geologist records the relative ages of the rocks. What did the geologist use to determine the relative ages of the rocks?
Based on the law of superposition, what is the order of these rock layers, from oldest to youngest?
Which of these statements describes what happens during radioactive decay?
The age of a rock sample can be determined by finding the relative amount of a parent isotope that has changed into a daughter isotope within the sample. Which property of radioactive decay allows the age of the rock to be determined in years?
Models help us study things that are too big, too small or too dangerous. Which of these is NOT a model?
Models serve many purposes. Which is NOT a purpose of a model?

Leo does an experiment to test how the type of water affects the growth of a plant. Which of the following is NOT a constant?
In a sixth grade science class, two lab groups get very different results. What should each group do?
Each atom has a half-life that is:
These rocks are often foliated, meaning they have layers.
As a result of cooling slowly, these rocks develop air pockets and are often very lightweight.
