Minerals Need You!

One of the biggest natural resources is being used too much!

Richard: What The Heck Are Minerals?

Tatum: Minerals are a type of Natural Resource. They are inorganic, solid, and naturally occurring. That means that people did not make it. The word, "Mineral" is used in lots of different ways and preferred by geologists.

Carrie: What are we doing wrong with minerals?

Bibi: Well, we're using minerals in things like computers and buildings. Because Minerals are nonrenewable, this is a big problem. By the way, "nonrenewable" means it can't be used again. "Renewable" is the opposite. (Guess what it means...)
