I will use this to teach 4th graders about the rock cycle.

This has a good breakdown of each section to teach. That's really helpful, especially teaching junior high or freshmen in high school who haven't had a lot of exposure to this kind of subject.

I thought the site contained a lot of really helpful information I could use for preparing lessons. I was hoping for visuals that could also enhanse learning in the classroom.

I think this is a good website that gives students a good understanding of California geology that is so close to the Central Valley.
