Mrs. Morrissey from Farmingville NY is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Mineral Identification

Help me give my students the opportunity to identify the minerals that make up the composition of the earth by providing us with hands-on sets of each mineral, including hornseblend, quartz, talc, .galina, mica, and others

My Students

I teach three Regents Earth Science Classes in Farmingville, NY. Two of these classes are ICT (Integrated Co-Teaching). There is a mix of regular and special education students ranging from 9th to 11th grade

They are a great group of kids and I would like them to complete more hands-on activities.

My Project

Many of my students have an Individualized Education Plan and are hands-on learners. Having samples that they can touch will help them to identify their properties. They will test for streak, hardness, cleavage, fracture, luster and color.

Being able to identify minerals is important, because mineral identification is necessary to identify rocks and can be used to understand both the landscape and the geologic history of the area.

This lab gives an opportunity for my special education students to practice the skills they have been taught in class.

Thank you for helping my class!
