STATION ONE
INTERACTIVE ROCK CYCLE ANIMATION ACTIVITY SHEET
This interactive animation of the Earth shows where some common rock-forming processes occur.
Embedded animations will illustrate the path of a rock moving through the rock cycle.
**As you view the animation CLICK the image to start the animation. Each time the main animation
stops, click the blinking feature to see the visualization. After you’ve seen the visualization, close
the pop up window and continue.
Answer the following question as you follow along:
