Rocks & Minerals Google Slides Interactive Presentation

$3.00

Description

Introduce minerals, rocks, and the rock cycle with this 32 slide Google Slide presentation. Each concept is introduced with a definition and reinforced with several examples, student practice questions, and open ended questions.

 

This presentation covers:

  • what is a mineral?
  • mineral properties
  • what is a rock?
  • sedimentary, metamorphic, igneous rocks
  • rock cycle (briefly)

 

This is an interactive lesson with several slides requiring student interaction. You can have students type in the presentation itself by making a copy for each student or connect to interactive presentation apps such as Nearpod or Peardeck.

 

This lesson is compatible for student paced or instructor paced presentation.

 

Purchase includes a printable PDF file in color. On page 2 of this resource you will find a link to a student friendly Google Slide version of this file. You will be able to copy this file and use it with Google Classroom or any other paperless initiative.

NGSS Standards covered:

MS-ESS2-1 Develop a model to describe the cycling of Earth’s materials and the flow of energy that drives this process. Emphasis is on the processes of melting, crystallization, weathering, deformation, and sedimentation, which act together to form minerals and rocks through the cycling of Earth’s materials. Assessment does not include the identification and naming of minerals.
MS-ESS2-2 Construct an explanation based on evidence for how geoscience processes have changed Earth’s surface at varying time and spatial scales. Emphasis is on how processes change Earth’s surface at time and spatial scales that can be large (such as slow plate motions or the uplift of large mountain ranges) or small (such as rapid landslides or microscopic geochemical reactions), and how many geoscience processes (such as earthquakes, volcanoes, and meteor impacts) usually behave gradually but are punctuated by catastrophic events. Examples of geoscience processes include surface weathering and deposition by the movements of water, ice, and wind. Emphasis is on geoscience processes that shape local geographic features, where appropriate.
MS-ESS2-3 Analyze and interpret data on the distribution of fossils and rocks, continental shapes, and seafloor structures to provide evidence of the past plate motions. Examples of data include similarities of rock and fossil types on different continents, the shapes of the continents (including continental shelves), and the locations of ocean structures (such as ridges, fracture zones, and trenches). Paleomagnetic anomalies in oceanic and continental crust are not assessed.
