Non-Traditional Instruction Work at Home - Aggregate Industry
This short video was created by Max Good with Harrod Concrete and Stone. He created this video to help teach children a little bit about a loader in a rock quarry and hopefully they pick up some other fun facts along the way! We hope you enjoy this vidoe of the loader.
Sometimes things are used so often and in so many places, we no longer consider their significance. But, the importance of aggregates – rocks used in construction and industry – can hardly be overstated. Aggregates are essential to the safety, comfort, productivity and standard-of-living we enjoy.
The purpose of this coloring book is to help children to recognize the importance of aggregates, as well as to teach them how we provide these essential rocks, sand and gravel to our community. Just about every type of construction requires aggregates. Aggregates form solid building bases and foundations, and are essential ingredient in asphalt and concrete – staple materials used in nearly every kind of pavement and building project.
In addition, certain types of aggregates are used to treat emissions from coal-fired power plants, while other types are used to sustain agricultural productivity and even to enhance products like paint, paper, toothpaste and pharmaceuticals.
In short, we all have the same goal in mind: To make our communities the best they can be. It all starts with getting to know each other better. We practice community and environmental care as a matter of common sense and respect for our neighbors.
We hope the children enjoy coloring the pages in this book, and perhaps, everyone will learn a little more about our work as aggregate producers in the community.

This educational video provides footage of the many uses of stone, sand and gravel. These materials are used in both asphalt and concrete. Did you know, crushed stone consists of 95% in asphalt and 80% in concrete? That’s right, these two products need a lot of crushed stone. Crushed stone is used to build highways, bridges, city streets, buildings, sidewalks, bike paths, patios, houses, water treatment facilities and lots more.
This video provides some excellent footage of how a surface limestone mine prepares for a blast at a quarry. You will see how a shot is drilled and the actual shot or blast goes off. You will see the crushing, screening, and conveyor belts that are used to transport the stone through the quarry.
We would like to thank CRH Materials for providing this excellent video.
This workbook - The I Build America Activity Book is a fun and interactive way to show children the importance of construction, with puzzles and games that help them learn about the construction industry.
Hello Crewman! Welcome to your new job in construction. First, you will learn about the tools and equipment you will be using in the field. Then, you will learn the importance of water, electricity, roads, and buildings. We also need your help with fixing broken equipment and decoding a message to share with others. Sound like fun? Great, let's build America!
Can you imagine a world without rocks? This video shows you why rocks are so important to our daily lives. Rocks are in everything in cell phones to sunscreen to makeup to tooth paste.
