Journal ArticleDigital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

A teacher describes how developing a structured, focused, and fun curriculum on rocks and minerals for learning-disabled students transformed her initial reluctance about Earth science into enthusiasm. Students observed, described, and sorted rocks and explored rock formation. A sample worksheet is included, as is a list of children's trade books about rocks.
