SHORT-ANSWER ITEMS

1. Here are some words that describe different observations you could make about a rock. Circle the three (3) words that are observations about size.

Directions: Read the sentences about a mineral. On the line next to each sentence, tell what property is described.

5. Ms. Jackson found a rock near the street by the school. She plans to write a letter to a geologist at the U.S. Geological Survey to help her figure out what kind of rock it is. Without sending the rock in the mail or taking a photograph of it, what information should she include in her letter so that the geologist can help her? Circle the three (3) things below that are most important for figuring out what kind of rock she has found.

END-OF-MODULE ASSESSMENT

for Earth Materials

NARRATIVE ITEMS

Two scientists, Smith and Garcia, completed a chart showing the scratch-test results of

three minerals. They wrote “yes” if the scratching tool did scratch the mineral, and “no” if

it did not scratch it. Each scientist worked alone.

(Reminder: A knife is harder than a penny, and a penny is harder than a fingernail.)

16. Whose results do you think are more reliable? Why?

17. Based on the results of the scientist whose results are more reliable, list these three minerals in order of hardness. Circle the hardest mineral.

SCIENTIST SMITH

Talc YES YES YES

Calcite NO YES NO

Apatite YES NO YES

SCIENTIST GARCIA

Knife Penny Fingernail

DOES THE TOOL SCRATCH THE MINERAL?

END-OF-MODULE ASSESSMENT

for Earth Materials

NARRATIVE ITEMS

A student found a pretty stone in the park near her home. She wasn’t sure if it was a rock or a mineral, so she took it home to try some tests. Below are the observations she wrote in her field notebook.

DATE: 4.16.98

PLACE FOUND: Larkey Park

OBSERVATIONS:

About the size of my fist.

Several colors: brown, black, tan, and white smooth round pieces

stuck in what looks like cement (light gray color).

I can scratch the black pieces with a paper clip, and the brown

and white pieces with a penny.

When I put a few drops of acid on the cement part, it fizzes.

CONCLUSIONS: I think this is a rock.

18. List at least three things from the observations that would convince someone else that the pretty stone from the park is a rock, not a mineral.
