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

Week 21-22 lessons are centered around mineral stations. Includes everything you need!

1. The first week (21) 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 week (22) 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.

 Week 23 teaches about The Rock Cycle.

  • This easy to use kit is designed for a 30 minute class period.
  • Explain the rock cycle with the included Rock Cycle Visual Aid.
  • Allow the students to hold and study the rocks as you teach.
  • The students fill in their ID Sheet during the Class.
  • It is best to do these one at a time to avoid confusion and mixing the rocks.
  • Kit includes 3 Igneous rocks, 3 Metamorphic rocks, and 3 Sedimentary rocks,
  • We also include 1 processed rock (to show how some rocks are used in our modern world).
