Earth’s Changing Surface Test: Rock Cycle, Weathering, and Erosion


This is more than a “definition style” exam!

Grades 6 – 8

Get kids THINKING about changes to Earth’s surface! There are diagrams to analyze, and the questions mimic how standardized tests generally ask about this topic. It includes 25 multiple choice questions, a 2-part open response question, and a “claims and evidence” short answer section.

This test covers:

  • Chemical and mechanical weathering
  • Erosion
  • Deposition
  • Types of rocks (igneous, metamorphic, sedimentary)
  • Rock cycle

Less copies and easier to correct – save time with our test packet format! The test is 4 pages long (2 front/back) with an additional 2-sided answer sheet. You only have to make one class set of test question packets and then reuse them from class to class, as it is only necessary for the students to write on their answer sheet.
