My Favorite Mineral

A Class Presentation

Dynamic Earth


The idea here is to assemble a presentation on one mineral that will take about three to four minutes. You are required to have visual aids (a minimum of two) and a good background knowledge of your mineral.


Stuff you should know:

-         Chemical composition, and crystalline structure of your mineral

-         Where it is found and who first discovered it

-         Uses of the mineral

-         Legends (if any) about the mineral

-         Why should we care about this mineral?


Grading rubric categories

-         Visual Aids

-         Eye Contact

-         Stance

-         Research

-         Rehearsal


You must chose a mineral and give me the name by Friday of this week. Go to one of these sites for a listů
