We will also make our own state using map concepts. Science - from the desk of Mrs. Liporto Using our mock rocks, we were able to explain the difference between a rock and mineral. Minerals are the ingredients that make up a rock. A rock is made up of two or more minerals. If you break down a rock you will get different minerals. If you break down a mineral you just get more of that mineral. We are in the process of breaking our mock rocks into their minerals. So far we have evidence to show that they are made up of gravel, shells, flour and sand, and this week we will continue to break them down to try to figure out what other minerals are inside.
