Rock vs. Mineral - Lesson #2

Students visually distinguish between those rocks that appear to be made of one substance, vs. those that appear to have more than one. This leads to the distinctions that indicate the different types of rocks: igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic. Students come to the label for each type of rock only after they have worked with the specimens and determined the various qualities.
