Minerals, Crystals and Gems : Stepping Stones into Inquiry
Resources - About - Acknowledgements

Minerals, Crystals, and Gems: Stepping Stones to Inquiry is an online edition of the December 1998 issue of Smithsonian in Your Classroom, published by the Smithsonian Office of Education, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C.

Our purpose is to help teachers bring into their classrooms the educational power of museums and other community resources. Smithsonian in Your Classroom draws on the Smithsonian's hundreds of exhibitions and programs--from art, history, and science to aviation and folklife--to create classroom-ready materials for grades 3-8. Each of the four annual print issues explores a single topic through an interdisciplinary, multicultural approach. The Smithsonian invites teachers to duplicate Smithsonian in Your Classroom materials for educational use.
