In this lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades 6-12, students use BrainPOP resources to explore how rocks and minerals are classified by their physical and chemical properties. Students will complete a virtual investigation of the formation of rocks and minerals and practice identifying and classifying them through online game play. Through the game, they will also explore the interrelated nature of rocks and minerals and learn how they explain the changes we see on Earth.
