Travel to the world of Mighty Miner (MM for short)! Through this 20 page activity book, MM will be your guide exploring types of mines, mining processes and structures, and the miners and geologists who bring important minerals to all of us. This coloring book is from Mining Matters (Canada) compliments of Barrick Gold.
Most people have never seen a mine, but we all use things that are made from a mine.
Miners helped settle much of the Wild West.
Agriculture, industry, recreation, transportation and mining are all ways we use our land.
Today, farmers use large machines to help grow and harvest the food that feeds people all over the world.
Long ago, many people were farmers who worked hard to grow food for their families.
The Earth provides our food, water, plants, animals, rocks and minerals.
Natural resources are all around us.
The Earth is the source for our natural resources.
Can you find the different natural resources that were used to build your classroom?
