    The goal of this book is to develop an understanding of the rock cycle & the difference between rocks and minerals and mineral identification. This book covers 11 topics in 17 different lessons with activities. Each lesson begins with an overview for that lesson, list of materials, lesson preparation instruction, hands-on activity, and closure which is the discussion of the activity. In some lessons there are several activities and all use items that are accessible. Teacher information pages include instruction on the topic of that lesson, and in some lessons there are demonstrations like using a hard boiled egg to show the earth's layers, making an earth crust sandwich, homemade rocks, and growing your own crystals. A resource list for teachers and students suggests a few websites and books for further research. Activity pages are reproducible. 48 pgs. - Donna

    There is always time for experiments, whether you have an hour, a day or a week! Presented in a 2-page spread, each experiment provides background scientific information, supply list, step by step instructions and the science behind it. Uniquely, the table of contents identifies the length of time to complete the experiments with a fun, colorful test tube graphic and key so parents can wisely select the activity based on time available.

      Beginning with the scientific process, experiments are divided into 4 categories: Earth Science, Life Science, Physical Science, and Technology/Engineering. A section is also dedicated to Science Fair success stories. A sampling of activities includes testing clouds for salt, comparing organic and genetically modified tomatoes, growing crystals, and creating turbine power. Experiments use common household items. Detailed index. 185pgs, hc. ~ Deanne

    Rocks and Minerals are a favorite science topic in many households. This book from National Geographic Kids is full of interesting information about rocks and minerals. It contains plenty of photos, information, and fun trivia. This isn't just for reference; there are some cool geology activities, too. You will learn the differences between rocks and minerals, their uses, their formation, how they break down, and have some fun growing minerals and making your own fossils. There are interactive pages where you are to match gemstones in their natural state with finished gems and locate items made of stone that you might encounter on a daily basis. You will learn interesting trivia like how many stone blocks were used to build the Great Pyramid, which stone floats, or at what temperature diamonds vaporize. The photographer is Carsten Peter who is an "extreme photographer." You will see photos of caves and caverns, lava flows in Tanzania and Hawaii, Arches National Park in Utah, Stonehenge in England, glowing Mt. Etna in Sicily, giant crystals in Cave of Crystals in Mexico (my favorite), and more. These pictures will pique your curiosity and give you a yearning to see these places in person. (I know this book is for kids, but I have really enjoyed working through the interactive glossary at the back of the book, matching pictures, reading the information, and staring at the gorgeous photos.) Don't be surprised if the grown-ups sneak a peek at this book, too! ~ Donna

    If you have a young one interested in rocks and collecting, this book can offer some fun supplementary activities to educate them on the subject. Explore Rocks and Minerals teaches children about the structure of the earth, minerals and crystals, igneous/sedimentary/metamorphic rocks, fossils, and how to be a rock hound. All of this is done by incorporating 20 different hands-on projects that will make the learning fun like making an edible 'earth' model, growing your own crystals from Epsom salts, modeling basaltic columns, baking 'pumice' meringue cookies, eating a 'sed-sandwich' for lunch, and wrapping up by making your own rock display. More than just fun, your children will be introduced to the amazing world of rocks and minerals. This non-reproducible book is divided into 7 chapters and each includes information on the topic, vocabulary words, interesting facts, black & white illustrations and activities. The back of the book includes a glossary and a page of resources in case you are interested in further investigation. You can use this book as a supplement to your curriculum or do a mini-study on rocks and minerals. Either way, you may be training a future geologist. ~ Donna
