Product Description
What are the properties of minerals? How can I classify and identify minerals? What are the differences between rocks and minerals? What are the uses of minerals? In this interactive and fun EDITABLE minerals webquest, students will learn all about the properties of minerals and how to identify them. In this webquest, students will learn about, engage with, and apply Mohs’ Hardness Scale, scratch tests, specific density, and other geological tests to identify mystery minerals. Students will watch short videos, read a scientific literacy article, interact with virtual mineral collections, play games, compare and contrast minerals, and apply their learning to identify virtual mystery minerals.

You will receive an attractive and easy to follow 4-page student handout with 60 questions chunked clearly for each web resource. Students will answer questions, complete graphic organizers, and apply information directly pertaining to each resource. This is a no-prep and student led activity that will teach your students about the properties of minerals and how to identify and classify minerals. Students will be excited and engaged throughout the entire activity. Tiny URLs and full URLs are provided to ease transitioning between online resources.

This would be a great lesson, homework, introductory activity, review activity, extension activity, or even a sub plan!

Students do not need any prior knowledge before completing this activity and can do it all on their own if they are absent! Highly interactive and my students love it!
