Junior Edifors Quiz on CORAL QUESTION: How is « coral island formed? ANSWER: Most of the tropical seas of the world are inhabited by small soft-bodied animals called coral polyps. They have the ability to extract the calcium from the sea water and build limestone houses around their bodies. Billions of these tiny coral polyps live together in great colonies. When the polyps dies its limestone house remains and another polyps builds his own house on top of it. Gradually, over many years, a great mass of coral rises from the bottom of the sea. When the coral reaches the surface of the water it becomes a reef. Soon, sand and powdered seaweed fill the cracks in the coral and the reef becomes an island. Sometimes the islands grow to tremendous sire like those in the Great Barrier Reef off Australia which is 1,250 miles long. FOR YOU TO DO: You can build a coral-like island in a pan of water, using small stones to represent the coral. Pile the stones in the water until they reach the surface. Then pour dirt between the stones and pack it down solid. Your island of stones is built on the same principle as the coral island. (Marlene Waits of Alton, III., wins $10 for this question.
