Earth Science could be some one's favorite class and who knows how many future geologists we have in our classroom. My students are English-as-a-second-language students taking Earth Science for their needed science credits in High School. Book learning and powerpoints with pictures are still abstract for many with limited vocabulary. Being able to have actual specimens of the minerals we learn about in class is concrete learning and would make it real for them. Students have to be able to identify certain physical properties. With actual mineral kits, they can discover for themselves the uniqueness of each one. Pyrite isn't just another word to be memorized but will be the name of an actual piece of rock they can see for themselves. Please help me give my students the hands-on support they need to understand the content and see for themselves that Earth Science rocks!
