Where it is?

Squirrels are found all over the world, except for Australia. They are mammals and weigh less than 4 lbs. Ground squirrels eat nuts, leaves, roots, seeds, and other plants. They also catch and eat small animals, such as insects and caterpillars.
The canadian shield has a very rocky surface and a large amount of trees that mostly cover the region . It is found in the top right corner of Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and Labrador.
Land Forms
Limestone is used to make cement, roads, and fertilizer. In addition, many forms of limestone are strong enough to be used as building materials. People use limestone to make floors, for making the walls of buildings, and for building statues. Limestone is useful for building because it does not easily wear away and it is not difficult to shape. Over time, limestone buildings and statues may even turn from white to gray.
Minerals are naturally occurring substances formed by geological processes. They are usually solid and feature a crystal structure as well as specific physical properties and chemical composition.
