Week of January 16th

This week’s learning targets in science:

  • Differentiate between minerals and rocks (which are composed of different kinds of minerals
  • Describe the distinguishing properties that can be used to classify minerals (i.e. luster, hardness, crystal shape, streak, reaction to magnets, and acids
  • Explain and diagram the external and internal processes of the rock cycle (e.g. weathering and erosion, sedimentation, compaction, heating, re-crystallization, resurfacing due to forces that drive plate motion

Have a great week!
