What is the Mineral Properties kit?  It is the Mineral Study included in this pack.

Includes directions and supplies to set up 5 mineral stations. Includes everything you need!

1. The first day you set up learning stations for Luster, Transparency, and Habit.  The students rotate in pairs through the stations to touch, investigate and learn as they identify minerals. They will enter the information on the Student ID sheet.

 2. The second day you set up learning stations for Hardness and Streak.  Some of the minerals are utilized in both weeks.  Students rotate in pairs through the stations. They will conduct the mineral tests necessary to identify Hardness levels according to the MOHS scale and determine the streak of minerals. The students enter the information on the Student ID sheet.
