    8. 8. Traditional Lesson Students will be taught the 3 types of rocks (sedimentary, igneous, metamorphic) using a textbook. Students will then create a flipbook of the three types of rocks that includes definitions and examples. The Inquiry-Based Learning Version Essential Question : What patterns exist under the earth's crust? Student Engagement : Students observe rock samples detecting differences and similarities, sorting and recording information Cooperative Learning : Students will work in research groups Performance Evaluation : Students will publish a multimedia slide to be shared with their classmates, scored with a scoring guide Variety of Resources : textbook, Internet, CD-ROMS, and rock samples. Example
