Master Mines: Preparing for Play
Ensure that students have some background knowledge about minerals and rocks before beginning this lesson. Master Mines is a game that allows students to virtually explore a diversity of mines around the world to locate prized minerals, but it is much more interesting when students know more about these minerals and their geography!
The objective of the game is to identify these minerals back in the lab and recommend uses for them based on their unique physical properties. For detailed, step-by-step game instructions, visit the game and click “Instructions.”
