Title: Testing the Hardness of Common Minerals
Url: http://www.maine.gov/doc/nrimc/mgs/education/lessons/act20.htm
Publisher: Maine. Department of Conservation.
Description: This activity gives students practice and a chance to develop expertise in using the test for hardness in identifying common minerals. Following a discussion and an introduction to Moh's scale, the students will work in groups to test minerals whose identities are known against their standards (common substances whose hardnesses are known). Once the known minerals have been tested, the students can proceed to test unknown samples. A student worksheet and discussion questions are provided.
