Materials and Minerals

Throughout this module, students will use hands-on, inquiry-based explorations to investigate:

  • where deposits of minerals can be found.
  • how deposits form.
  • how minerals are mined.
  • what responsibilities you have in managing these resources.
  • the importance of minerals as a natural resource for producing materials.

Use the navigation on the right to explore resources that will be useful for the investigations.
