This unit of study takes your students through a discovery of rocks and minerals. Students work in teams of geologists as they make observations about the properties of rocks. Technology is integrated through various websites that share information on rocks and on soil. Most of these lessons can be done independently or with teams or partners as the students use the Internet to find information on topics. Discovery Education is also used to secure concepts and add depth to content.
* National Geographic Science was used as a reference for this unit of study.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
This looks to be a good match to the Vermont Grade Expectations for 4th grade. I'm wondering if you would send me a Table of Contents with the names of the activities and just a simple sentence about each activity?
