Rocks and minerals are important to everyone, every day. We see rocks everywhere – both as a part of the Earth, and used by society in construction and manufacturing. All of the raw materials we use to make things are either grown (plants and animals) or mined (rocks and minerals).
Dinosaur bones maybe be the most well-known fossils, but they are not the only fossils. Fossils are the remains of animals and plants that have been preserved in rocks or minerals.
