Rock Cycle Activity (Developed by SEPUP)

kit #404S

The concept of the rock cycle is complex, including the formation and break down of rocks and the processes by which one type of rock can become another. This game illuminates and reinforces these ideas. Playing in groups of four, students record what happens to their set of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks. After completing the game, they work together to share results. A detailed student sheet, guides students on how to use their results to describe the rock cycle. The kit contains eight complete sets of the game so that an entire class can play simultaneously.


  • Explore the rock cycle
  • Identify the processes forming and destroying rocks
