Geology is the science that studies the earth. It includes the study of materials that make up the earth, the processes that change it and the history of how it evolved — including life on earth. The study of geology is filled with the mystery and adventure of what happened to former lands and seas, and to plants and animals that lived on or in them millions of years ago. In this project youth will look at the story of the earth to gain a better understanding of the earth and the sources of the minerals youth use each day.
Some counties have more requirements. Contact your 4-H leader or UI Extension county office to check.
