Did you know:
-Sand is shell and rock that have been worn down by nature into tiny grains (that love to stick to your toes)!
-The typical peanut butter and jelly sandwich eaten on the beach contains over 7,000 grains of sand!
-Sand from islands or tropical sites have sand that is high in Calcium, since seashells are rich in Calcium and are broken down to form sand there.'
-The rocks, pebbles, and sand on the beach are sorted by the waves. They vary in size from large pebbles down to very small ones, and finally to sand, which is almost pure quartz.
