Minerals are all around us. They are necessary for life, they are part of the walls in the school, they help heat our houses and provide us with clean drinking water. But what are they? Where do they come from? What do they really look like? How do we get them? What are they worth?
This project leads students to investigate a mineral of their choice and create a presentation or poster about it.
I have included a rubric for grading the work and four example presentations in Powerpoint form worth a variety of points (20 points, 15, 10, and 5 points) to help students understand the assignment.
