Enjoy this hands on approach to comparing and contrasting characteristics and examples of rocks and minerals. The first option is using two hula hoops and overlapping them to create a hands on Venn Diagram. Students sort the large words/phrases and put them in the appropriate location. There is an answer key for self checking. The second option is for students to use the blank Venn Diagram and cut out the smaller words/phrases and glue them on. Lastly, students can use the list and write the words/phrases on the lined Venn Diagram. Covers all types of learners. Enjoy!
