Description:

This interactive virtual tour for younger students lets them 'drive' a quarry truck and visit a rock quarry to see how the rock is mined, processed and transported, and what the aggregate is used for. The tour includes safety tips for visiting quarries. They can also 'restore' an abandoned quarry by planting virtual grass, reeds, and trees, view movies about quarries, and use a virtual microscope to look at some rock samples. There are also links to lesson plans on the use and restoration of quarries.
