Calcium carbonate misconceptions

The new ELI just published is ‘I’m pure calcium carbonate’ – the calcium carbonate question; a discussion focussed on common misconceptions about calcium carbonate.

Are limestone and chalk rocks made of pure calcium carbonate? What about the mineral calcite? This activity helps pupils to understand the likely purity of minerals and rocks.
Many activities to do with limestone and chalk landscapes, the weathering of limestones and the carbon cycle can be found on our website.
