Letís revisit the first 2 questions we started this WebQuest off with:
Do we need rocks in our lives?
Can you imagine a world without rocks and minerals?
Reflect on what your initial answers were, and how you would answer those questions now.
What have you learned that may have changed your answers?Through this WebQuest, you have learned about several ways we need rocks and minerals in our day to day lives. You also have learned about how we go about retrieving rocks and minerals from the ground, through different mining processes. It is important to realize the effect mining has on our environment and us, and why it is important to proceed carefully when extracting rocks and minerals that we need.
