Grade 4/5 Integrated Resource Unit on Mining Virtual Workshop

Registration is through Eventbrite.

Intermediate students enjoy the opportunity to learn about mineral resources and the mining. It is all new to them! This resource is written with a thematic approach to geoscience and mining, integrating learning across the curriculum. Students examine mining in the past, present and future. They are introduced to rocks and minerals and the rock cycle, as well as BC’s mining communities, how ore deposits are discovered and mined, how we use minerals and metals, mining careers, and mining and the environment. Participants will recieve a comprehensive resource kit which includes a 350-page teacher’s binder with BLMs, worksheets, answer keys, curriculum correlations, plus and a wealth of support materials.

Presented by MineralsEd partner-teacher Andrea Eisler.
