Module 2: Discussion Forum
Every rock tells a story about Earth’s past. For this week’s discussion, begin by viewing this short video from the Brown University Science Center (Links to an external site.)
about the stories one particular rock tells us. Then, select a specific
type of igneous, sedimentary, or metamorphic rock to research. Here is a list (Links to an external site.)
of different rock types you might choose from. Tell us about the rock
you have chosen. Which kind is it? What minerals does it contain? How
did it form? What stories can it tell us about the Earth’s past? For
instance, sedimentary rocks and extrusive (erupted at the surface)
igneous rocks typically tell us about the nature of ancient environments
or eruption events on Earth’s surface, while metamorphic and intrusive
igneous rocks tend to tell us about geological events that happened deep
underground, typically as a result of plate tectonic forces. Be sure to
select a specific kind of rock that no one else has chosen yet.
