Rocks and Minerals Tabbed Booklet


I guarantee that you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck with this tabbed booklet! These earth science topics have never been easier to teach, because this tabbed booklet completely explores rocks and minerals for you. Your students might think rocks are boring, but they aren’t!

Unfortunately, with the large demands on reading and math from the Common Core, science is often pushed to the side. If your district is like mine, then you often have very little time to dedicate to science, yet you are still expected to fully cover the entire curriculum. This resource was created to help save you time and to cover the important science concepts, all while still meeting the nonfiction criteria of the Common Core.
