Goal: To collect, identify, and display rock samples from each of the three types of rocks
and to find a minimum of 4 minerals.
Objectives: Given the activity to collect rocks & minerals, the student will:
1. Collect and identify at least 2 rock samples of the three rock categories. (6 rocks)
-Sedimentary – try for a clastic, organic and/or chemical.
-Igneous – try for an intrusive, extrusive and/or porphyry.
-Metamorphic – foliated and unfoliated.
2. Collect and identify at least 4 different minerals (6 is maximum for this school
collection
3. Label each rock in the collection. With a typed label. See format below:

4. Be sure to organize the samples appropriately with the label beneath each
sample.
 Samples should be placed/glued on a clean thin board or sturdy cardboard.
 Board/Cardboard no larger than 24”x18”.
 Clearly organize your collection by rock type and mineral in some manner of
your own choosing.
5. Name and period on a label in the lower left corner of the project.

Parents,
Please sign below stating that you are aware of this project. Rocks/minerals can
be found locally, collected or gifted from family members, friends, neighbors, just
about anywhere. Polished rocks are NOT allowed. We’d prefer they not be store
bought, no need to spend money. (Unless there is a great sample that you just must
have!)
Once collected keep the samples at home. Once we learn all the identification
techniques, the students will bring in their samples to identify using all of the lab
equipment.
