This resource appears to be designed to build towards this science and engineering practice, though the resource developer has not explicitly stated so.
Comments about Including the Science and Engineering Practice
Students could construct an explanation based on evidence by using the information from this website. The website states “Our writers and contributors all have a background in geology, mineral exploration or mining. It is our collective goal to become part of your educational process, especially when it comes to geology and mineral exploration,” so the information should be valid and reliable. Students would need guidance as to how to gather information and construct an explanation. Students could work as individuals gathering information from different minerals and ores and creating their explanation. Or students could focus on one mineral ore and present the information to the class. Some sort of data sheet should be provided to help students record the information and have it available to construct an explanation as to why minerals are located where they are.
