O'Brien, George E.; And Others
Ten activities that feature a hands-on, student inquiry-based investigatory approach to rocks and minerals are presented. "Guided discovery" and/or inquiry instructional strategies are emphasized. They focus on a student-centered active classroom. Each activity includes the heading, science content, the scientific process skills, objective or purpose, the lesson outline (time, minerals, preparation, procedure), and worksheets to be handed out to students. Mineral identification, classification, and characteristics of minerals and rocks (streak and hardness) are the subjects of the activities. (KR)
