This is a wonderful resource

This is a wonderful resource and I definitely plan on using it next year to support my unit on Earth Structures. I really like the chart you created and the directions you provided. The questions you ask on the rest of the slides are really helpful in reinforcing this concept. I also like that you mix in other properties of minerals.
