This is a two-page, two-sided foldable for students to put into their science journals and is used to research MINERALS and their PROPERTIES. This is meant to be an independent, online research activity, but can be done in pairs, groups, or even be teacher-led. In the end, students should be well-informed as to what minerals are all about.
QR Codes are included with the activity so that students can use their own electronic device or the school's devices to reach the websites. Two QR Codes are youtube videos and the third QR Code is an online mineral guide - accurate, user friendly, and easy to find information about minerals.
Not only will students learn about what minerals are, their properties, and the many minerals that exist... there is also an interactive Moh's Scale of Hardness! Students must research the minerals that are part of the foldable, cut them out, and glue/tape them onto the Moh's Scale of Hardness according to their hardness level.
Students can also color parts of their foldable to make it unique!
Don't miss out on this fun activity that even you might enjoy making (if you've got your own journal)! For my students, completing this activity took between 3 - 4 class periods. My class periods are 45 minutes long.
