Mining an Ore

High schoolers investigate how to determine the percent composition of a mineral in an ore. In this mining an ore lesson plan, students use chocolate chips cookies to represent an ore and they remove precious minerals (the chocolate chips) from the ore. They calculate the mass percent of chips and find the percent composition of the ore.

Lesson Planet allows me to browse through teacher created lesson plans that I can easily adapt to fit with my class materials. I like how I can save plans that I choose so I can go back and find information and resources with ease.
