This pack focuses on identifying properties of rocks and minerals. It is ideal to have rocks and minerals for your students to investigate and use with this pack. If you do not have actual rocks and minerals there are pictures included, but it would be harder to identify properties just by looking at a picture.
This pack includes:
*Reading Passage about the properties of rocks and minerals with questions and an answer key
*Reading passage with the three types of rocks (metamorphic, igneous, and sedimentary) with questions and an answer key
*Cards with 9 types of minerals and their names
*Cards with 14 types of rocks and their names
*Venn Diagram to compare rocks and minerals
*Vocabulary Posters for the three types of rocks
*Introduction slides for each property (a smart notebook file and PowerPoint are included)
*The introduction slides as PDFs that can be hung up in the classroom as posters.
