The Mining Education Glossary is intended to provide easy reference to mining terms which are used in the minerals recovery industry and as a useful resource for teaching basic learning skills. Accompanying the glossary are 28 mining games designed to help students at all grade levels learn language arts skills including spelling, vocabulary development, word usage, pronunciation and the meanings of words that might be used in various related study units. Activities involve students in word search games, crossword puzzles, and other language and word power learning experiences.
