What’s That Rock?

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 areĀ 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!
