Looking For ArrowHeads

A friend of mine brought to class yesterday some arrowheads he found at his gram pa's farm in Southern Minnesota.

Soon as I started examining them I wanted to become an archaeologist.

All I could do is hold them,and gaze into them wondering who made them.What was he like?How long ago was this arrowhead made?

My teacher also pointed out that is was easy to see that the arrowheads were all made at different times.Even perhaps up to two hundred + years apart.

He pointed out the quality of each arrowhead,and the stone itself what they were made of,and said the more crude an arrowhead was,was a possibility of it being older.

There were some made of quartz,some of other types of soft stone,and a couple flint ones.

An archaeologist is also a detective.

I hope to be able to takes some courses in archeology when I go to college.

Water On Earth Is So Important.

My 10'th grade science teacher has appointed me the task of reading up on the importance of water.

The Earth has to drink the polluted water we create,but we have the technology to filter it for human consumption,but not all areas on the globe have that privilege.

Why do we abuse the most important,and precious resource this planet has?

That's going to be the big question when you're done reading my report.

I will edit this article later this week and add my writting on this subject.
