Exploring Minerals

I love this geology lesson plan. Third and fourth graders look at the connections, and the differences, between rocks and minerals. Learners are charged with identifying specific rocks and minerals, learning how to properly use scientific equipment, and compiling a science notebook that accurately records all of their predictions, observations, and findings.
