A great way to manage your rocks and minerals unit is to group your students. This will help make your experiments a little more manageable and allow you the opportunity to have great discussions with your groups. But what to do with your other groups?
1. Finding great rocks and minerals webpages for them to explore.
2. Create Rocks and Minerals choice boards.
3. Play Vocabulary and Review Games.
The experiments are what will help the students remember the skills. Let them explore and ask questions. Create lab guides to help guide their thinking as they work through the scientific process.
