OUTSIDE THE BOX:
Take a virtual field trip to Hawaii's unusually colored beaches: black sand (from eroded lava) is found on several islands, most prominently the Big Island; red sand (from eroded iron-rich lava) is found on Maui; green sand (from eroded olivine) is found on the Big Island; orange sand is found on Molokai; and white sand (from eroded coral) is found on several islands, most prominently Oahu. (A sharp observer may recognize Hawaii's green sand beach from the home page of my website.) www.onlyinyourstate.com/hawaii/colored-sand-beaches-in-hi/
