These Mineral Comprehension Cards are a first introduction to what minerals are. It is a great partner activity where students read one card at a time aloud, turn the card over, orally retell, and repeat this with a partner. Then, write down a short retell of the card. Multiple rereads and formats of retelling builds good readers while building content knowledge of minerals. There are 16 cards. This can be used as a first introduction of mineral. Topics include what minerals are, how minerals are in rocks, uses of minerals in our daily lives, interesting facts, characteristics of minerals, classification of minerals, and common minerals, Although this was made for Utah 4th grade classrooms, it isn't specific to Utah. This follows a unit on the rock cycle and is part of my Rock Cycle, Minerals, and Soil Science and Literacy Complete Unit BUNDLE.
