Igneous Rocks Match Up

When learning about igneous rocks, I have found that my students have a difficult time visualizing the differences between Igneous Intrusive and Igneous Extrusive Rocks. As I have mentioned in the past, I taught rocks and minerals with very few actual samples. After reading about intrusive and extrusive rocks, I made this graphic organizer. I copied the individual words on color copy paper (3 per sheet to save paper!) and students cut them out. They then sorted the words and glued them above and below the earth’s surface. Before I copied the volcano page, I outlined the line between above and below earth’s surface with a Sharpie to make it more clear. Students glued each word in the correct place.
