This lesson revolves around helping students develop an understanding of the different properties of rocks and minerals. This was the first lesson in my mini rocks and minerals unit that I did during my one-visit-per-week pre-internship this fall. This lesson involves an opportunity for students to explore physical characteristics of rocks and minerals and classify the different properties of a real mineral. This lesson plan and resource sheets are attached below.
Please feel free to comment any different ideas or adaptations for this lesson as I am always looking to have different views.
Until next time, thank you for reading my blog!
