Uses of minerals

Our new Earthlearningidea published today is 'Be a mineral expert - 3; the mineral foundations of everyday life'. This is a matching exercise, where pupils are asked to match photographs of everyday objects with photographs of the minerals from which they are manufactured. It can be used in a variety of circumstances, e.g. in revision of a minerals topic by relating photographs to some minerals which pupils have already encountered. It could feature in a science or geography lesson, or in discussion of the mineral wealth of a country.
It is one of a series of 'minerals' activities. Related ELIs are shown on our website.
