WHOA! WHAT A FIELD TRIP!
I've always wondered. What are rocks made of? It seems like they're everywhere.
But what's a mineral??
From what I know, all rocks are made of minerals.
Minerals are naturally occurring, inorganic solids that have a crystal structure and definite composition.
I don't get it. Can you explain further?
Ooohh. What kind of rock is this?
Minerals don't come from living things. They have a definite volume and shape, and a definite amount of elements.
COOOOOL. I wanna learn more. NEXT TIME!
Well, we're near a volcano, so it may be an igneous rock.
