Summary:"This discussion activity has been devised to encourage pupils to think about rock cycle processes in the context of the area outside their own school. By leading the small group discussion using questions like """"What might happen next?"""", """"And then?"""", or """"Can you think of another idea?"""", teachers should be able to encourage pupils to consider a range of different processes and products of the rock cycle and how these link to other Earth cycles."
