Using the Glencoe Science Earth Science book students can easy practice their vocabulary with a matching section and then use the works to fill in the cloze paragraph. Words include streak, luster, hardness and so forth. Page numbers are provided on the page sections for easy completion on students and minimal guidance from teacher.
This is easy enough to be completed without a text book as either an exit ticket or as bell work the day after covering mineral properties.
Puzzles on back include a word search with mineral names, a Sudoku, and a maze.
Could be done as a review before the test as well without the textbook.
