1 Exploring Rhode Island Minerals

2 RI GSEs in Science Grades 3-4 Understandings Students demonstrate understanding of earth materials by 1a describing, comparing, and sorting rocks, soils, and minerals by similar or different physical properties (e.g., size, shape, color, texture, smell, weight, temperature, hardness, composition). 1b recording and analyzing observations/data about physical properties (e.g., within a grouping, some characteristics are the same and other are different. 1c citing evidence (e.g., prior knowledge, data) to support why rocks, soils, or minerals are classified/not classified together.

3 RI GSEs in Science Assessment Targets ESS1 (K-4) INQ 1 Given certain earth materials (soils, rocks or minerals) use physical properties to sort, classify, and describe them.

4 RI GSEs in Science Grades 3-4 Understandings PS1 (3-4)–1 Students demonstrate an understanding of characteristic properties of matter by … 1a identifying, comparing, and sorting objects by similar or different physical properties (e.g., size, shape, color, texture, smell, weight, temperature, flexibility). 1b recording and analyzing observations/data about physical properties (e.g., within a grouping, some characteristics are the same and others are different. 1c citing evidence (e.g., prior knowledge, data) to support conclusions about why objects are grouped/not grouped together.

5 RI GSEs in Science Assessment Targets PS1 (K-4) INQ1 Collect and organize data about physical properties in order to classify objects or draw conclusions about objects and their characteristic properties (e.g., temperature, color, size, shape, weight, texture, flexibility)

6 My Focus Question

7 Class Focus Question What minerals are found in Rhode Island? What minerals are found in Rhode Island? How are these minerals used? How are these minerals used?

8 Prediction Draw a mineral you think is found in Rhode Island, name it, and describe its properties. Draw a mineral you think is found in Rhode Island, name it, and describe its properties. I think the mineral can be used this way... I think the mineral can be used this way...

9 Planning-Procedure Gather Materials. Gather Materials. Six Minerals, Hardness Test Materials, Porcelain Tile, Handout Six Minerals, Hardness Test Materials, Porcelain Tile, Handout Observe Color and Texture. Observe Color and Texture. Conduct Streak Test. Conduct Streak Test. Conduct Hardness Test. Conduct Hardness Test. Identify minerals Using “Background Information” sheet in handout. Identify minerals Using “Background Information” sheet in handout. Return materials and clean up. Return materials and clean up.

10 Data - Organizer Sample Number Color and Texture

11 Data - Organizer Sample Number Streak Test

12 Data - Organizer Sample Number Hardness Test

13 Claims and Evidence - I know this to be true. - Here is the evidence:

14 Conclusion - I learned I used to think (prediction) Now I think…. Now I think….

15 Next Steps - New Questions - I want to know... - I want to try this...
