Do kids still learn about the Precambrian Shield these days? Bushman, you’re not a kid, but you’re the youngest person I know up north. Did you learn about it? Any other Canadians out there learn about it?
Little known fact #1: The reason it is comprised of bare rock is that the last ice age scraped the rock clean of soil.
Little known fact #2: The shield is of interest re: the origin of human life, because the rock is 2.5 – 4 billion years old. Freaky, huh?
For my Fit in 15 today I decided to take my dogs exploring the shield today.
Readers, you can get a point towards the iPod shuffle and $20 iTunes giveaway for leaving me a comment either giving me more ideas of how I can spend 15 minutes both getting fit and getting to know Yellowknife, OR for giving me any more info about the Shield!
