Hey guys✌️! I’m back! Today I’m going to talk about week 6 challenge, science!! I wanted to talk about geology! My science question was how old are the oldest rocks in Canada? I’m from Canada so I was curious about the rocks here. It turns out Canada has some of the oldest rocks in the world they are around 4.2 billion years old! They are from the Nuvvuagittuq greenstone belt. These rocks were created roughly 300 million years after the earth formed. These rocks also contained some of the worlds oldest fossils! Here’s a video about these special rocks and fossils!
I also have a two truths and a lie quiz about geology for you, try to pick out the lie!

My name is Jess from Australia. You recently came to my blog and answered my two truths and one lie. I found your week 6 work interesting. I had no idea about the rocks in Canada and that some are 4.2 billion years old. I loved reading your blog, Holly.

I didn’t know much about Canadian rocks either before this, but my dad is geologist so I was really interested in learning about some rocks! I’m so glad you visited my blog, thanks for coming!

Wow! Your facts on rocks are really interesting. Canada has some really ancient rocks! Where did you find your information? When you get the opportunity next time, include your sources to give credit to the original website/author. Unfortunately, I was unable to play your two truths and lie game as the google form said that I needed permission but I am sure it was a fun quiz. I look forward to reading more of your posts!
All the best,

Thank you so much! I will try to link my sources next time. Also I’m really sorry for the Google Form, I’ve had issues with it before so I’m going to ask my teacher how to fix the problem. I’m glad you enjoyed my post because I had a lot of fun making it!

Wow, 4.2 billion years old, that’s amazing. Last year I wanted to be a geologist so this is very interesting to me. Also, the other day you checked out my blog. Although you gested 2, you were talking about the octopuse, but it was number 2. Thanks so much! I also read your climbing post and that was very interesting!
Thanks again and happy blogging,
