Reviewer Comments:

In this comprehensive 20 day unit, late elementary students will identify properties of rocks and minerals, later identify them in lab tests, and learn about their history and currents uses. The unit is presented in an Excel file with separate tabs for the unit overview and each subsequent lesson. Each lesson has an estimated timeline, anticipated prior knowledge, a lesson objective, suggested assessment, aligned standards and materials needed, in addition to a summary of all lesson procedures. There is also a space on each plan with notes for enrichment and accommodations, as well as anticipated problems. The lesson summaries are somewhat brief and teachers would need to decide which content to include in activities such as the “whiteboard quiz” and “exit cards.” Some sort of answer keys and specific lab exploration procedures would be helpful to teachers unfamiliar with the content. Overall, this unit is outstanding in its level of detail, scope and variety of learning tasks.
