Just a quick comment that I’ve posted my first mineralogy lab dealing with the physical properties of minerals & the second one that examine ball and stick models to talk about coordination over on my Google site.
The first lab makes the students search through the collection to find samples that are representative of different physical properties. The students end up with a much better idea of where things are in the lab and what some of the stranger minerals in the collection are.
The second lab takes advantage of the ball and stick models that are scattered through the lab. This lab has been part of my repertoire since grad school, though its undergone a number of revisions over the years.
