Students will learn the properties of gems, rocks, and minerals. They will apply scientific vocabulary as they increase their understanding of and appreciation for this important aspect of geology. Class 1: Scientific Vocabulary Students will gain an understanding of the foundational principles of gem, rock, and mineral chemistry. The class covers luster, color, hardness, and other unique properties. These are taught with illustrative and real examples. Class 2: Gem, Rock, and Mineral...
By the end of the course, students will be able to: -Understand the difference between a rock and a mineral -Classify rocks or minerals by their physical properties (color, transparency, luster, magnetic, and hardness) -Describe the mechanisms of gem, rock, and mineral formation -Identify three or more rocks or minerals by sight
I'm a licensed educator and I majored in the geological sciences. I absolutely adore geology and I love helping others learn. From my own childhood experience and my experience as an educator, I know where many pitfalls are when it comes to learning new topics and I can help students avoid those pitfalls and achieve the desired outcomes. The study of the Earth is an inspiring pursuit. I would love to share my expertise with others so we can all increase our appreciation for geology!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
