MONDAY: Students will continue their work with minerals by completing the “Cookie Mining” Lab. This lab will show them the cost vs. benefits from open pit mining, though it is done by using chocolate chip cookies. The chips will be the ore mined, and sizes and purity will determine value, which is offset by the cost of mining equipment, operating the mine and reclamation costs. This lab will take the full class period to complete. Periods 3-5 and 2,6 will have slight variations to their assignment Homework: No Homework TUESDAY: Students will finish the cookie mining lab: 15-20 mins. Igneous rock introduction: Students will observe several examples of intrusive and extrusive igneous rock and add their descriptions to their notebooks: 10 mins. Igneous Rock Introduction: Students will read chapter 3, section 2 in their textbooks (pages 82-87). Students will then complete questions 1-6 on page 87 (using complete sentence answers). Homework: Complete page 87 questions 1-6 for Wednesday. WEDNESDAY: Notes: The rock cycle- 30-40 mins. Intrusive vs. Extrusive Igneous Rock: Students will take their notes on igneous rock and try to differentiate between intrusive and extrusive rocks based on the samples provided to them. Students will examine the size of the crystals/ grains formed to determine the formation of their igneous rock. Homework: Periods 3-5: Chapter 3, section 2 Reading Guide B Worksheet - Periods 2,6: Write a CER showing understanding of intrusive igneous rock. Write a second CER for extrusive igneous rock THURSDAY: Students will complete an igneous rock foldable, using their notes, as well as information from their textbooks (pages 82-87). The guidelines will be provided in an accompanying link. Students will be graded on content, details, examples, appropriate color and neatness. (directions are found on the lesson plans page). Homework: Complete the igneous rock foldable if not finished. Review for igneous rock quiz FRIDAY: Igneous Rocks Quiz: 20 mins Students will begin their study of sedimentary rock. Students will read pages 89-85 in class. Students in periods 3-5 will complete questions 1-5, while periods 2,6 will complete questions 1-3, 5-6 on page 95 Homework: Finish book questions.
