The "Rockin' NC" educational materials were developed with the support of the Vulcan Materials Company Foundation. The learning modules are intended to provide formal and informal educators with ideas for teaching about the rock cycle in North Carolina and some important minerals in an engaging, interactive way. To see what's in a ROCKIN' NC CLASSROOM KIT, scroll down to the bottom of this page for an interactive photo. For information about upcoming Rockin' NC Teacher Workshops, visit the Material Loans and Workshops section.
We welcome feedback! The High Country Press featured an article about our collaboration with Vulcan Materials Company Foundation. Check it out to learn more.
If you see anything that could be improved or want additional ideas for teaching a specific concept, please contact Marta Toran (email@example.com).
All digital resources can be freely downloaded, if you don't have the physical materials (e.g. rocks and minerals) to implement the activities, we have them available for loan or can put something together for your class. Just let us know!
