About this event

This Resource Unit is written with a thematic approach to mining, mineral resources, and Earth Science, designed for (but not limited to) the grade 5 curriculum and integrating learning across the curriculum subjects (Science, Math, Social Studies, Art, English). Topics include rocks and minerals, the rock cycle, mining (past, present, and future), mining and the environment, mining careers, mineral exploration, uses of geological natural resources, and more!

The virtual workshop consists of two parts:

Part 1: The MineralsEd’s “Rock Star 101” presentation will introduce participants to mining and geology in B.C., rocks and minerals, and the rock cycle. Teachers will have the opportunity to get hands-on by exploring their own MineralsEd Rocks and Minerals Kit and practicing their rock and mineral identification.

Part 2: Participants will review and discuss lesson plans and classroom activities from the resource unit binder.

This workshop will be online and will require virtual participation. Registrants will receive a resource package from MineralsEd before the workshop. The resource package will include a binder with background information for teachers, classroom activities, MineralsEd Rock and Mineral kit, MineralsEd Mining Kit, MineralsEd Reclamation Experiment Kit, USB, classroom posters, maps, bookmarks, and more! Binders and select materials also available in French!

***Registration priority will be given to teachers that have not taken this workshop in the past. Please be aware that if you have taken this workshop before and still choose to register, you will be moved onto the waitlist until registration closes. Also, due to our limited resources, teachers that have received the resource kit in the past will not receive a second resource kit, should they attend the workshop.***
