Rock & Mineral Newspaper activity page

Students complete this newspaper-style activity sheet to learn about rocks and minerals. The 4-page newspaper outline prompts children to answer questions about a rock/mineral sample (not included). Students record their observations, including color, weight, size, hardness and luster.

They are asked to draw a picture and to design a billboard advertisement of their rock/mineral. Students must research their rock/mineral to provide information on how it was formed, its rarity, and use. This activity promotes the concept that everything we have comes from our natural resources. 17” x 22” double-sided worksheet folded in the style of a 4-page newspaper.
