Dear LOR user,

Thank you for being a big part of this community. To better support the initiatives around open educational resources in the state of Michigan, all resources on the Michigan Virtual Learning Object Repository (LOR) are being moved to #GoOpen Michigan on September 30th, 2018. During the transition, our LOR will be moved to an archived state, not allowing new user registration or new content to be added. An email with more details was sent to registered users of the LOR in September. To make use of the great resources on the platform, we encourage you to create an account and add your own new resources to the #GoOpen Michigan platform.

Moon Rock or Not?

Description: 

Students will be using a list of facts about lunar rocks and their previous knowledge about rocks and minerals to decide if a sample they are given is a moon rock or not. They must come up with a claim, evidence that backs the claim, and then defend the claim to the class.

Learning Targets: 
Students will understand how rocks can be different based on their environment of formation.
Students will understand what the rocks of the moon are like and how the moon's formation caused these rocks.
