Georgia performance standards

Georgia Performance Standards

  • Science:

    S3E1- Students will investigate the physical attributes of rocks and minerals.

  • Math:

    M3D1- Students will create and interpret simple tables and graphs.


Do you know the difference between a rock and a mineral

Do you know the difference between a rock and a mineral?

In this lesson, you will become a geologist. Your job is to investigate the differences between a rock and mineral. Have fun!! 

Granite-rock

Gold-mineral

Three Types of Rocks


Sedimentary rocks

Sedimentary Rocks

  • Broken rocks, shells, mineral grains, and other materials are all sediments.

  • All these sediments collect in layers to form sedimentary rocks.


Metamorphic rocks

Metamorphic Rocks

  • Made by extreme pressure and/or heat

  • Can you identify either rock? 


Igneous rocks

Igneous Rocks

  • These rocks are formed from cooled magma.

  • Magma is melted rock deep inside the earth.

  • Magma on the crust of the earth is called molten lava.


Discover how rocks are formed

Discover How Rocks are Formed

  • Click on the website below to learn more about the three types of rocks and how they are formed.

The Rock Cycle

They are both pressed down.

All are made of

minerals.

Both Experience heat

and pressure.


Extra extra read all about it

EXTRA, EXTRA, READ ALL ABOUT IT!!

Click on the website below to learn more about the rock cycle.

What are minerals

What are Minerals?

Look at all of my gold, I’m rich!!

A mineral is a solid material made of one substance, that occurs naturally on Earth.

Most of the common minerals are made of crystals.

Our Favorite Gemstones

After surveying the class about our favorite gemstone, here are the results:

Which gemstone does our class like the most? The least?


Lets do math

Lets Do Math!

Read the graph below. Create two questions about the various items and there hardness according to Moh’s hardness scale. Exchange your questions with a classmate and check their answers.


Lets build a volcano

Lets Build a Volcano!!

First, view this erupting volcano video (click on real media player and be patient).

http://www.nationalgeographic.com/eye/volcanoes/phenomena.html

Now, lets have fun building your own volcano.

Test your knowledge

Test Your Knowledge!

Are you a Rock Hound? Take the quiz to find out. Good Luck!!

LETS SING!!!!

Rock Cycle Song

(Sing to the tune of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat")

SEDIMENTARY rockHas been formed in layersOften found near water sourcesWith fossils from decays.

Then there's IGNEOUS rockHere since Earth was bornMolten Lava, cooled and hardenedThat's how it is formed.

These two types of rocksCan also be transformedWith pressure, heat and chemicalsMETAMORPHIC they'll become.

Your Job Assignment

National Geographic has hired you to investigate the uses of minerals used in your daily life. First, research the minerals you use. Then, create a chart telling me the name of the minerals and how it is used. Finally, survey your classmates to see what minerals they use daily and create a pie graph with your results.

Have fun! 
