Product Description
In this activity, students will learn about the different processes used to identify a mineral.

Before the lesson, set up stations for each of the properties used to identify minerals: luster, hardness, breakage, color, streak, and special characteristics. If students need it, you should have resources available describing the process for determining each property beyond what is described in the activity.

By focusing on identifying one mineral as opposed to many, students are able to focus and more fully understand the processes used to identify the mineral.
