Different Minerals

In this minerals worksheet, students read about the relationship between elements, rocks and minerals. They experiment using 6 different colored gumdrops to represent 6 common elements. Students construct gumdrop and toothpick models of a mineral until they run out of gumdrops. They compare their models to their classmates and conclude why the class was able to make more than 6 different models with only 6 kinds of atoms.
