Students will become geologists as they discover the characteristic properties scientists use to identify minerals. Through observations and comparisons of mineral samples, they will learn how properties such as color, shape, hardness, reflectivity, and density are not only used to distinguish minerals but also determine how minerals are used in our everyday lives.
