This topic looks at minerals and rocks and helps us to understand the different properties needed to identify them. We will focus on minerals and how they are the building blocks of rocks and we will show how we can no longer live without these resources. Moreover, minerals and rocks are an important first step in understanding other topics in geology that will be discussed later.
Subtopics in this unit include: Minerals, Igneous Rocks, Sedimentary Rocks, Metamorphic Rocks and the Rock Cycle.
Bundle Includes: lecture notes with accompanying fill-in notes, 6 worksheets, 4 laboratory activities, 8 supplemental activities, 4 multiple choice quizzes and 4 free response quizzes.
