What are earth materials l.jpg
What Are Earth Materials?

  • An earth material is any natural material that is not now living on the earth’s surface.


Vocabulary l.jpg
Vocabulary

  • Geology: the study of the Earth

  • Geologist: A Scientist who studies Earth materials, such as the rocks and minerals on the Earth



Rock properties l.jpg
Rock Properties

  • Texture

  • Color

  • Shape or edges

  • Size

  • Mass

  • Smell


Mock rocks l.jpg
MOCK ROCKS

  • CHALLENGE: YOU WILL DESCRIBE THE ROCK IN DETAIL SO THAT LATER ON IF THE ROCK IS CHANGED IN ANY WAY, YOU WILL HAVE A RECORD TO REFER TO.

Measurement vocabulary l.jpg
Measurement Vocabulary

  • Diameter: the distance across a circular object

  • Circumference: the distance around a circular object

  • Depth: how thick an object is

  • Meter tape: measures linear dimensions

  • Balance: measures mass (You weigh a mock rock using a balance to determine its mass.)


Materials needed l.jpg
MATERIALS NEEDED

  • 2 paper plates

  • 2 mock rocks

  • 1 set of measuring tools

  • Colored pencils or crayons


Make your observations l.jpg
MAKE YOUR OBSERVATIONS

  • Carefully record all measurements.

  • Make your drawings neat and precise.

Take mock rocks apart l.jpg
TAKE MOCK ROCKS APART

  • How can we determine the ingredients of rocks?

  • Take your rock apart using your pick (nail)

  • Group the ingredients

  • Record results.


Vocabulary16 l.jpg
Vocabulary

  • Minerals: one ingredient in the earth’s crust that can’t be broken down - minerals make up rocks

  • Rocks: earth materials made up of different ingredients called minerals – rocks are made up of more than one mineral/ingredient



Materials l.jpg
MATERIALS

  • 1 VIAL PER PAIRCUP OF WATERSYRINGEPAGE 5 OF NOTEBOOK


Procedure l.jpg
PROCEDURE

  • Fill the vials one-third full with leftover gray material

  • Add 25 ml of water to the vials

  • Snap on the cap and hold it tightly while shaking for a few minutes.

  • Observe the contents and draw a picture in the first vial outline.

  • Record observations


Reflections l.jpg
REFLECTIONS

  • How has water helped to separate the rock ingredient?

  • What do you notice about the way the materials are beginning to settle?

  • What do you think will happed if the vials settle overnight?

  • Do you think there will be anything left in the water.

  • What will you observe if the ingredient dissolves?


What is the difference in rocks and minerals l.jpg

Rocks

Made up of different ingredients

Rocks can be broken down into different minerals.

Minerals

Made up of only one ingredient

Minerals can’t be broken down any more.

What is the difference in rocksand minerals?


Vocabulary22 l.jpg
Vocabulary

  • Minerals: one ingredient in the earth’s crust that can’t be broken down - minerals make up rocks

  • Rocks: earth materials made up of different ingredients called minerals – rocks are made up of more than one mineral/ingredient

  • Property: something you can observe, such as size, color, shape, or texture

  • Crystal: the solid form of a material that can be identified by its shape or pattern


Observing crystals l.jpg
OBSERVING CRYSTALS

  • What happened to the liquid?

  • Use the crystal identification sheet to identify more ingredients in the mock rock

  • Crystals are a solid form of a material that can be identified by its characterist shape or pattern.


Rocks science content l.jpg
Rocks Science Content

  • Rocks can be separated into their components

  • Rocks exhibit a variety of properties, including shape, size, color, and texture.

  • Water, setting, and evaporation can separate rocks into their components.

  • Crystals form from evaporation of a saltwater mixture.

  • Rocks are composed of earth materials called minerals that cannot be physically broken apart any further

  • Rocks are made of ingredients called minerals.
