Rocks and Minerals Activity Kit is a fun, interactive way for students to learn, while integrating science and ELA! Make learning without a textbook motivating and exciting for students!
Included in this kit you will find:
-Rocks and Minerals Menu (keeps students’ independent learning focused with 6 activity choices)
-Rocks Pamphlet (copy back to back to create pamphlet for recording research)
-Mineral Cards (research 10 common minerals to complete cards—put them on a ring for safe keeping)
-Rock Posters (research igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks to create fact posters)
-Rock Art (plan and design an art project related to rocks)
-Rock Formations Tab Book (research and write a report in a tab book)
-Rocks and Minerals Slideshow (research to report in a slideshow)
Prep for the kit is easy: print and copy activity sheets and activity direction cards. Place books (from your library), copies, direction cards and any additional materials (art supplies) in a bin or a bag for student access. Students can work independently or in small groups for science/ELA enrichment! One kit can last one week, or throughout the duration of your unit, depending on how much time you have. You may also use these projects as extensions for students who want to learn more independently.
Each activity can also be implemented as a whole group project.
These activities are interactive and will keep students engaged in learning about rocks and minerals!
