Transcript of Rocks and Minerals Assessment Photo Album

Welcome to your
Rocks and Minerals Unit! Standards addressed in this unit:
What will we be able to do? 1. I can describe the different types of rocks and how they are formed.


2. I can write a report that has clear ideas and information is well organized.


3. I can classify rocks based on color and texture.


4. I can use our Science book and search tools on the computer to locate information.

5. I can describe different ways that we use rocks in real life. Why are they on Earth? What would life be like without rocks? Standard #1: I can describe the different types of rocks and how they are formed, (and)... We will be able to answer this essential question:

How are rocks formed and how do they change over time? You will be playing a ROCK OUT game to show that you know about rocks and how they are formed.

This will not be graded. It is for me and you to know how you are doing. You will be presenting the rock cycle. You can choose how to do your presentation. You can:
1. Do an oral report,

2. Make a model with labels,

3. Make a poster,

4. Make a diorama, or...

5. Choose your own idea. How will we be graded? You will also be writing
a 5 paragraph essay to go with
your presentation. Standard #2: I can write a report that has clear ideas and information is organized well. Standard #3: I can classify rocks based on color and texture. You will be finding your own special rock and conducting experiments to determine what your rock is made of! Before we get started, we need to answer a few questions. Some you will answer, and some your family will answer: Something for you: Something for your family: Some essential questions: What is a rock? Let's look at some of those standards and how you will show you have learned them. These students wrote a song! These people are acting out the rock cycle! Essential question:
What are rocks made of? You will be visiting different rock stations where: You will clean your rock and look at it with a hand lens. You will draw what it looks like, and record it in your rock journal. You will find the true color of your rock by performing the streak test. You will try to scratch a penny, a knife,



and a glass jar with your rock. You will conduct an experiment by using vinegar in a dropper to see if bubbling occurs. You will hold a magnet to your rock to see if it is attracted. Finally, you will find out if your rock sinks or floats. All of these experiments will help you
learn what your rock is made of. All of your results will be recorded in a rock journal.
We will create a rubric and requirements for your journal together. Standard #4: I can use our Science book and search tools on the computer to locate information.

You will participate in a web hunt as well as use the information in your science book to find out what minerals might be inside your rock. At the end of the unit, there will be a written test. Some questions will be true/false,
short answer, fill in the blank, and multiple choice. Your grades for this unit will come from:

1. Your rock cycle presentation,

2. Your rock report,

3. Your rock journal, and

4. The written test. ROCK
ON!!
