Product Description
Are you looking for a lesson that introduces what rocks and minerals are and how they are different? This lesson teaches just that! A rock is like the Snickers bar and a mineral is like the Hershey's bar.

This is a hands-on, edible lesson I have used many times to introduce my rocks and minerals unit. With this lesson, students observe a Hershey's bar and a Snickers bar. They then discuss the similarities and differences between these two candies. Then they participate in a classroom discussion where they learn how this applies to rocks and minerals. Every single time I teach this lesson, my students LOVE it! They get really excited to learn more about rocks and minerals and they think I'm the coolest teacher ever. (Both of which are A-OK in my book!)

Here's what you're getting:
• A very detailed lesson plan that thoroughly explains how to teach this lesson
• Two graphic organizers where the students will take notes
• One of the graphic organizers leaves room for an optional foldable
• Answer keys
• Real pictures of mica, feldspar, quartz, and granite. (All of which you can use to show the difference between a rock and a mineral.)

This lesson is just part of my HUGE Rocks and Minerals Unit! Click the link for the entire unit.
