Soils
Soil covers a major portion of the earth's land surface. It is an important natural resource that either directly or indirectly supports most of the planet's life. Life here depends upon soil for food. Plants are rooted in soil and obtain needed nutrients there. Animals get their nutrients from plants or from other animals that eat plants. Many animals make their homes or are sheltered in the soil. Microbes in the soil cause the breakdown and decay of dead organisms, a process that in turn adds more nutrients to the soil.

Fossils, Rocks and Time
http://pubs.usgs.gov/gip/fossils/contents.html
People who study Earth's history also use a type of calendar, called the geologic time scale. It looks very different from the familiar calendar. In some ways, it is more like a book, and the rocks are its pages.

Rocks and Soils - 4learning
http://www.channel4.com/science/
Wherever you are now, there are rocks below you. Even if you are standing on the beach, digging in the garden, swimming in the sea or rowing across a river, there are rocks somewhere beneath your feet.
We can use rocks and soils in different ways. Hard rocks are good for building. Loam - a mixture of clay and sandy soil - is good for growing plants.
