Minerals Song

Here is a song I created to help my 6th grade students study. I hope you enjoy.

Minerals have special properties
To help identify, observe it
Observe, identify it

These minerals, they're naturally occurring
Inorganic solids, crystal shape
Elements always the same
Minerals

To classify it as, it must be
Found in the crust, but naturally
But you know it is so, inorganic not plant and trees
Animals once living, minerals then it can't be
A mineral is always solid
It has definite volume
And you know that you should know
And here we go
Minerals line up so
Making crystals shape strong
Faces, edges, corners hold
With elements made of atoms
Same chemical and physical
Making composition
But most are made of the minerals
Are made up of a compound
Two or more elements they're no longer alone

Dissolving in water, melted material
These are the processes that will make minerals
'Cause minerals will form from cooling lava or magma
Inside of the crust on land or forming in water
If cooling happens fast, small crystals they are had
If cooling really slow, larger ones they have
Can form from water solutions, or it's from evaporation

These minerals, they're naturally occurring
Inorganic solids, crystal shape
Elements always the same
These minerals, they're naturally occurring
Inorganic solids, crystal shape
Elements always the same
Minerals

These properties
Can help identify and check it
Start with the hardness in fact
Using Mohs scale to rank it
Now we're down to check the color, yeah we checking
An easy thing see many greenish others reddish
Streak test provide a clue to
Identify, observe rub on a plate color alert
The density within can tell the mass of minerals
And check luster-how the light reflects off of it

Dissolving in water, melted material
These are the processes that will make minerals
'Cause minerals will form from cooling lava or magma
Inside of the crust on land or forming in water
If cooling happens fast, small crystals they are had
If cooling really slow, larger ones they have
Can form from water solutions, or it's from evaporation

These minerals, they're naturally occurring
Inorganic solids, crystal shape
Elements always the same
These minerals, they're naturally occurring
Inorganic solids, crystal shape
Elements always the same
Minerals

Silicates and carbonates
Having hydrogen-halides

Now minerals have special properties
To help identify, observe it

Having sulfur-sulfides
And phosphorus are phosphates

See, minerals have special properties
To help observe, identify it
Special unique properties
To help observe, identify it

These minerals, they're naturally occurring
Inorganic solids, crystal shape
Elements always the same
These minerals, they're naturally occurring
Inorganic solids, crystal shape
Elements always the same
These minerals, they're naturally occurring
Inorganic solids, crystal shape
Elements always the same
