Rocks and Minerals End of Unit Test Friday 11/20/15

Today in class students were given a study guide over everything they will see on the test this Friday. Students will turn this study guide in for a classwork/lab grade this Thursday. They will then be given the key to go over and study. Students should start preparing now for the test.


Students need to study vocabulary on Quizlet as well as notes in their science notebooks. Here is an idea of some of the material that will be covered on the test:


  • What are minerals?
  • How are minerals identified?
  • How do minerals form?
  • How do geologists classify rocks?
  • How do geologists classify igneous rocks?
  • How do sedimentary rocks form?
  • What are the three major types of sedimentary rocks?
  • What are metamorphic rocks?
