These rocks and minerals task cards cover the rock cycle and its basic processes, mineral characteristics and mineral identification.
These 30 cards can be used in a variety of ways! Use them as oral reviews, in small groups, or individually as a stand alone lesson or part of centers. Other options are to use one card at a time with the entire class or as work to complete when they are finished with the main task of the day. Students can track the cards they have completed in their notebooks or on a separate sheet for grading.
An answer key is also included.
These cards will look best in color, but will also print out fine when the printer is set to grayscale. Simply print, cut and laminate for many years of use! I find that printing on card-stock and then laminating works best.
