The mineral foundations of everyday life

The Earthlearningidea 'The mineral foundations of everyday life' involves a matching exercise, where pupils are asked to match photographs of everyday objects with photographs of the minerals from which they are manufactured.

This activity 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 geology lesson, or in discussion of the
mineral wealth of a country.
There are many more activities about minerals on our website; the search facility will find them for you.
