scientist

Pretend you are a scientist and you just found a solid substance in the ground where you were digging. What types of tests would you do on this substance? How would you determine if it is a rock or a mineral? Describe your substance (yes you can make something up here that fits within the mineral/rock descriptions) and name your substance.


Thank you! if you help me this time!!!

A little letter to Ms. Sue:

Dear Ms. Sue,

You weren't helpful last time and um if you don't be this time. I'm going to report you! So, I hope you help me.

Thank you,

Bell
