PowerPoint Rocks and Minerals

Students Create a Rocks and Minerals PowerPoint

Students will research information and collect images about rocks and minerals using the internet. Students will construct a Powerpoint presentation following the criteria on the handout on this page. Students should use at least 4 different sources for their information.

This activity is a good opportunity to discuss plagiarism and citing of sources.

Finished Example:

Students should find relevant images of the rocks for each slide. Pictures should be clear and sharp. Simple layouts and backgrounds are preferable to busy, cluttered arrangements. Text should be brief, students should not fill the slide with long text passages.
