Minerals in your School Bag
We use minerals every day, often without realising it. The “lead” in your pencil, for example, is actually made from the mineral graphite. Chalk, too, is a mineral, as are other everyday things such as salt or plaster of Paris. This guided tour highlights the importance of minerals without requiring any knowledge of basic chemistry.
Suitable for adults and children over 8 years.
