Do You Know Your Rocks?

Today I’m just sharing this fun quiz for kids, which tests mineral and rock knowledge. I missed a few *blush.* How well did you do?

This quiz is awful. First, there’s the standard mistake of confusing minerals and rocks (“quartz” is not an “igneous rock.” I quit after the third item, when one of the “characteristics” provided for graphite (which, btw, is also not a rock, but a mineral) was “I am composed of calcium.” What a disaster! The problem is that many, not knowing better, might think this is actually an authoritative source of information.

Maybe my wrong answers were actually right! I feel better now 😀
