This is the infographic I give to my students to help them associate the characteristics of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks with actual photographs and diagrams of each rock type. I find it most useful to print in color. This is a great study tool for the rocks and minerals station for the lab practical on the New York State Earth Science Regents Exam.Note to Customer:Click on the above to follow my store.
