This assignment comes with 3 different versions to be used for differentiation. The reading is only one page in length, so it is not too tedious or overwhelming for students. Except for the lowest level version, the reading also comes with a table for students to record the main ideas of each paragraph as they read. At the end of the reading students answer reading comprehension questions that cover the main points of the reading.
Main Concepts in the Reading:

What crystallization is
How minerals form from magma
What determines what exact mineral will form
How minerals form from a solution
Why some crystals won't always form their "true shape"
