Studying rocks and minerals? What better way to have students learn than to incorporate technology and music? This webquest is geared toward students from grades 3-5, and is in a .pptx format so it can be altered to fit the needs of your class.
This project includes fully detailed instructions, educational links, and a rubric for grading the final project.
This activity can be done in class or as a primarily home-based project, and should take anywhere from two to three weeks. It involves having students study and research rocks and minerals, and then report their findings by means of an original song and performance.
*Note* Links are current and up-to-date at the time of posting, but the internet is ever-changing so it never hurts to double check them prior to doing this activity with your students.
