Minerals in your house

Mineralogy 4 Kids - Minerals in your house
Mineralogy 4 Kids – Minerals in your house


  • Website: Mineralogy4Kids (link) – a great website that provides students with a wealth of information on minerals.
  • Handout: Minerals in your house (pdf)

I like to use the Minerals in Your House page to introduce minerals to my students and have them explore the different ways we use minerals in our everyday life. In this post I am including an updated worksheet for students to take notes while they view the website.

    The Mineralogy4Kids website is gone!?! What happened?
    I used this site and activity for the last 6 years. It was a good one.

    I just wanted to let you know that the Mineralogy4kids website is no longer working. Do you by any chance have an update? Thanks.

    Hello! Thank you so much for sharing! I downloaded the pdf and converted it to a Google Doc, then posted it to Google Classroom. I hope that was okay!
