Chapter 3 Minerals
Students will conduct an introductory study of minerals.  They will learn the properties of minerals and how to identify minerals using the learned properties.   Students will begin to learn the scientific method through completion of basic labs while conducting tests to find a mineral's density, hardness and streak.
