Introduction to Rocks and Minerals is a bundle that introduces students to Earth’s minerals, rocks and the rock cycle. Both apps provide high resolution photos and videos, identification activities and quizzes, the results of which may be shared for teacher assessment.

Earth’s Rocks and the Rock Cycle introduces students to the three types of rock found on Earth and the rock cycle that illustrates the geologic processes that change one type of rock into another. How to Identify Minerals begins with an overview of mineral formation. It identifies and illustrates mineral properties with high resolution photos of mineral samples. Techniques for mineral identification are demonstrated with HD videos. Students get a chance to identify unknown minerals in identification simulations. The app also includes a searchable database of more than 50 common minerals. In a lab environment, the database may be used to identify actual mineral samples provided by the teacher.

These apps, geared for grade levels: 7-13, provide a foundation for middle and high school Earth science curriculum and conform to the Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core Literacy in Science Standards.
