I'm doing a research project on slate and rocks,anybody have ideas?

I'm looking for general information on slate and rocks, geology, and possibly a science experiment to go with it. any information would be helpful, thank you in advance for any help. I'm homeschooled, and am looking for different stuff like projects, found a piece of slate in the bottom of our creek that was loose, dug it out for research, I can get more if necessary.

In 1822 a scientist named Friedrich Mohs invented what is now known as the Mohs test or the scratch test--the most commonly used test to determine the hardness of rocks and minerals. This test is important for identifying unknown rocks and minerals. Basically, the test compares the hardness of rocks and minerals to a set scale, which runs from softest to hardest, in order to identify what a specimen is. The test is based on the fact that a harder rock will scratch a softer one.

thanks, thatoneguy97. also, thanks for telling me about the delayed comments, I will get that straight eventually. and my notifications are screwed up too, somebody comments on my answer to something, about 1/2 of them I went back to to either edit my answer or something, only to find a comment or 5 on my answer or a comment replying to a comment that I put on another answer on the same page, that I never got any notification for.
