This product is a color-by-number activity that allows students to answer various questions relating to minerals. And YES- even secondary students love to color!
There are 12 different statements and students must determine if they are true or false. Each answer choice corresponds to a different color. If all of the correct answer choices are chosen, then their final picture will be colored correctly to reflect complete mastery of the content.
Terms/concepts students need to know in order to be successful with this product are:
•Mohs Hardness scale (it would be helpful to provide this for students to refer to while completing this activity)
•dsitinguishing characteristics of minerals
•physical properties of minerals: cleavage, color, crystal shape, fracture, hardness, luster, streak, transparency
This could be used as a quick assessment, a homework assignment, additional practice, extra credit, or for early finishers. These are also great for days when you have to be out of the classroom - a sub can easily take over this lesson!
