Product Description
This Mineral Identification Pre-Test can be used to introduce mineral identification, as a post test, and as an alternative SLO assessment. My 6th graders use 3 mystery minerals with no guidance from the teacher except safety rules and to prevent mineral damage. The sheet involves a data table for color, streak, luster, breakage, hardness, density, acid test, and other. The sheet includes a partial word bank, the Moh's hardness scale, and calculations to figure out density. This assessment as a pre-assessment offers students experience necessary to form their own self interest in the topic. This assessment is a great assessment to use as part of your SLO if required by your state to offer students a hands-on testing experience that they will enjoy at the beginning of the year. If you have questions about how I use it on my SLO feel free to contact me. :)
