This chant will help your students learn about the properties of minerals. Included in the download is a printable copy of the chant. You can make individual copies for your students and chant it whole group. Or you can chart the chant using two different colored markers. Teachers ask the top lines. Students respond with the follow-up line. I have included pictures of my charts for this chant in the download. This chant is great for not only teaching key vocabulary in Earth Science, but it is also a wonderful way to teach the 3 different types of sentences: Telling, Question, and Command. Before teaching any key concepts, familiarize your students with the rhythm of the chant. Once your students have learned the chant, incorporate various grouping to the readings. It works very well with a reading partner or buddy in a center as a follow-up activity. Students can then illustrate the chant to show mastery of knowledge. This engaging chant from Kris' Common Core Crutches will help make incorporating science and language arts an uplifting experience!
