Homeschooling & Enrichment Class: Unit 8 Mineral Madness


Burpee's awesome homeschool and enrichment programming presents an exciting way to learn about science. Curriculum is designed around multiple STEM themes that change each year, and each semester. The 2020-2021 learning experience will offer new options including 100% online option and a hybrid in-person option as well. All classes will be held virtually until tier three mitigations have lifted in Illinois.


What makes a mineral? Lots of things do! Minerals, like rocks, are formed in specific circumstances by specific elements. These circumstances affect their appearance, hardness, and more! In this unit, students will have the chance to see minerals up close, learn the similarities and differences between them, and learn about how we mine and use minerals!
