Introduce children to geoscience—including a study of the Earth, rock formation, and landforms—in this fun guide that includes hands-on educational activities.
The Earth is our amazing planet—and when we consider what it is and how it’s formed, the answers are truly captivating! Become a young geoscientist. Learn about rocks and minerals, the layers of the Earth, the water cycle, and beyond. Dan R. Lynch, author of many field guides, presents an introduction to geoscience (or Earth sciences) in this easy-to-understand guide.
Begin by learning about the Earth and what it’s made of. That’s followed by a look at what’s inside the Earth. A special section on rocks introduces different kinds of rocks and what makes each of them unique, and a chapter on landforms presents everything from mountains and oceans to volcanoes and erosion.
As an added bonus, you’ll get more than 15 fun and simple activities for the family, which supplement the book’s information. Build a molecule, grow your own crystals, make sandstone, and more. This kid-friendly guide is filled with full-color photographs and illustrations. It’s engaging and informative as it starts children on a path toward becoming successful Earth scientists!
