Module Summary – DSCR Minerals, Rocks, and Fossils

In the Delta Science Content Reader Minerals, Rocks, and Fossils, students learn what minerals are and how they can be identified by observing their properties. Students discover processes that lead to the formation of rocks and trace how rocks are transformed into other types of rock in the rock cycle. They are also introduced to the importance of minerals and rocks as resources for jewelry, building materials, and other goods. The book concludes with a discussion of how fossils form and what they reveal about Earth’s history.
