This digital interactive resource for Rocks and Minerals is perfect for a paperless classroom or for those getting started with digital resources or distance learning. It covers the three types of rocks, the rock cycle, properties of minerals, erosion, and the impacts of mining on society and the environment. This resource has links to outside websites like youtube and a few other websites for students to read and learn about rocks and minerals.
