We completed a WebQuest today that asked students to investigate mining, simply defined as the collection of Earth’s solid, underground resources. The assignment began by having students investigate some commonly mined materials. Then students read about how and why many minerals can be found at the edges of Earth’s tectonic plates. Lastly, they researched the different methods of mining and their environmental impact. To download a copy of the lesson, click the link below.
