Welcome to the

Haggerty 3rd Grade Rock Site!

Photo Gallery

Start off by looking at some pictures of "Igneous" rocks, then move on to "Sedimentary" and finally to the pictures "Metamorphic" rocks. Do these three types of rocks look different? Do they look the same? Pick your favorite rock out of each group.

Rock Hounds!

This page has little movies which show you how Igneous, Sedimentary, and Metamorphic rocks are formed. Click on the name of each of the Rock Groups to see how they form! Finally, look at some of the examples on the bottom of each page. How do YOU think the way they are formed affects the way they look?


Finally, click here to listen to a song about Rocks, Gems and Minerals!
