Product Description
Allow your students to become "Mineral Detectives" as they work together to figure out which mystery minerals they are being given. Students can work in pairs or teams to use the properties of minerals (hardness, color, luster, and streak) to investigate which ones they have! This lab is a great way to spice up your Rocks and Minerals science unit.

With minimal set up, management, and materials required, this is the perfect student-centered, hands-on science lab to get your kiddos thinking and acting just like real scientists!

This lab allows students to practice with deductive reasoning, hypothesizing, investigation, predictions, teamwork/collaboration, analyzing evidence, practice with the correct use of scientific tools, communication, and formulation of explanations.

This full lesson plan comes with a step-by-step teacher directions/explanation as well as the specific science standards this activity connects to! Great for MANY different grade levels and an assortment of different types of learners!
