I got 12 of them. Rats! I said geology for #1. I didn't even try to guess #3 because I don't believe it is that old. I'm with Ken Ham on that one. I said stalagmite instead of stalactite. I got the little verse I learned backwards and was thinking "holding on with all their might!"

I got:

2. Tectonics
4. Crust
5. Mantle
6. Pangaea
7. Caldera
8. Fool's Gold
9. Bauxite
10. Diamond
11. Graphite
15. Obsidian
19. Ruby
20. Granite
