    Like the other texts in this series, the Earth Science employs a mastery approach to learning science students should learn, master, and retain, what they learn. A curriculum that uses this approach covers fewer topics but covers each more deeply. This text also integrates learning by combining skills in the areas of science, math, science history, and English language usage. Every chapter follows the same format objectives are stated, vocabulary terms presented, textual information numbered and divided into digestible amounts, learning checks' at the end of each reading section, and an exercise at the end of each chapter. Chapters in this book cover Earth in Space, Visualizing Earth, Thinking About Earth, Matter & Minerals, Rocks & the Rock Cycle, Plate Tectonics & Mountain Building, Volcanoes & Earthquakes, Weathering/Erosion/Soils, Surface Water & Groundwater, Landforms, Earth History, Oceanography, Atmosphere, Weather, and Climate & Air Pollution. A glossary, mineral chart, and other resources are found at the back of the text. The author believes in questions that require complete sentences as a response, so you won't find any true/false, matching, or multiple choice questions. Colorful illustrations and photos are used to enhance the content of this small format text (6.5" x 9.5").

    The text states three goals for which the student is to strive be good stewards of God's gifts; learn, master, and retain what you learn; learn to keep a lab journal. The student section at the front of the book explains how to keep your lab journal or you can use Student Lab Report Handbook (#47300) for guidelines suggested by this author for keeping a lab journal. This handbook is recommended for use at the high school level. There are eight Experimental Investigations found right in the text and include an overview, basic materials list and step-by-step instructions.

    As the author says in the preface to this book, a lot of earth science scientists focus primarily on one of the four branches of earth science and are not too concerned about the other three. A new thrust into the earth science field is earth systems science, and that's what this book is teaching. Earth systems science seeks to understand the changes of our planet and the potential consequences of the changes for life here on earth. It does this by looking at the planet as a whole, linking all four branches of earth science. Chapter one introduces readers to earth systems science, explaining the need to study the four branches together. The next three chapters look at the first of these - astronomy - at three levels: a study of the universe, our solar system, and the earth-moon system. Geology is studied in the next five chapters, covering minerals and rocks, geologic time and dating rocks, plate tectonics, volcanoes, and the earth's surface. Chapters 10-12 are the study of oceanography and water on earth - water everywhere, the world's oceans, and the dynamic oceans. The fourth branch is the one most people talk about: atmospheric science - the study of our atmosphere, weather, and climate. It covers earth's atmosphere, climate and climatic zones; atmospheric moisture, pressure, and winds; and weather and weather systems. The text is very complete, but it is not written with a Christian viewpoint - the "facts" given for how things formed or how old things are come from an evolutionary viewpoint. Black and white diagrams, illustrations, maps, and photos are used regularly throughout. Each chapter ends with a review test, and the book ends with a practice exam. Answers included. 377 pgs. ~ Zach

    Another addition to the "Painless" series, this book does a great job of explaining the concepts of earth science. Earth science is presented in easy-to-understand terminology that will help students understand. Chapters cover the topics of earth structure, atmosphere, weather and climate, hydrosphere, lithosphere, weathering, erosion and deposition, earthquakes and volcanoes, plate tectonics, earth's history, and earth in space.

    Every chapter includes textual information that has been written to the student, diagrams, illustrations, 'brain ticklers' which review material from the previous section, boxes with vocabulary and important facts, and a summary of the chapter in bulleted format. You even have the option of downloading a free app for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and Android, which includes quizzes and games. The quizzes test over material taken directly from the book, but the games are simply for fun – not content related.

    Use this 300+ page book as a self-study course in the middle school grades, or as a course summary, review, or introduction for Earth Science. You could also use this as a supplement to your existing curriculum, to add simpler explanations and fun review. ~ Donna

    Learn about Earth Science from a Biblical worldview. Use this 160-page book as a resource or pair it up with your science curriculum to add more dimension to the history and methods of discovery and invention. Dr. Gary Parker will take you from Newton’s discovery of gravity to the formation of the Grand Canyon using as your guide the Bible as the ultimate “history book of the world”.

    Not just an information book, this will challenge you to think about your view of creation through questions called Building Inspection. After reading each chapter (which uses science to support the Scriptures), content is reviewed using these questions to help solidify a Biblical outline of Earth’s history. Earth structure, atmosphere, minerals, rocks, water table, and types of volcanoes are just a few of the topics covered. Full of black and white illustrations and photos on almost every page, this book offers visuals to enhance understanding. Important facts and vocabulary are in bold throughout the reading and answers to the questions are found in the back of the book. ~ Donna

    This book is composed of over 100 reproducible worksheets that cover various aspects of earth science. The exercises encourage students to identify different things using words from the provided word bank. Students do everything from labeling hemispheres and landforms to filling out charts describing clouds and weather patterns to identifying scientific equipment and units of measure. A few crossword puzzles and dot-to-dot activities are also included, but most of the worksheets just prompt students to use words to answer questions. The worksheets can be used as a general review or teachers can select exercises throughout the book to correlate with their studies. Almost every area of earth science that is covered at these grades is included somewhere in the worksheets, including weather, rocks and minerals, seasons, planets, volcanoes, and oceans. An answer key is included. ~ Rachel S.

    Experiments for Introductory Physics and ASPC (Accelerated Studies in Physics and Chemistry, for gifted students and available from the publisher) includes only six experiments. It is the author's feeling that fewer in-depth experiments with lab reports will deepen comprehension. His goal was to develop experiments that are academically solid, inexpensive, and interesting. Some of the materials needed may be more difficult to obtain, so the author has a resource on page 96 of this book that lists materials that will work at home and where they can be purchased. Each lab includes learning objectives, materials required, experimental purpose, overview, pre-lab discussion questions, how to score lab reports, student instructions, and illustrations.

    Let your young scientists explore the earth with 60 activities in the areas of the earth's structure, fossils, rocks & minerals, crystals & gems, and earthquakes & volcanoes. Don't let the smaller 9"x 7" size fool you; this book is over 180 pages of information and fun. Each of the five chapters follows the same format. A cute little poem (corny at times) begins the chapter and is then followed by a list of the activities and new words you might encounter (along with definitions). 'Dynamic Earth' offers bulleted information on that specific topic and then a number of activities is presented along with materials lists, instructions and illustrations (black & white) where needed. You will get to play 'Earth Trivia,' make an earth spinner, take a core sample of a cream-filled cupcake, use tostada shells to model the continents, play 'Continent Bingo,' make fossils, start a fossil collection, grow crystals and much more. You'll find most items needed for the activities around your house, and there are some reproducible pages for some of the other activities. The back of the book offers a few (minimal) suggestions for additional resources, but you will probably be able to find some good ones at your local library. There is also a suggestion for purchasing fossil, rock, and gem specimens but you can let your child collect rocks while playing outside or find your own sources for purchasing (We carry quite a variety).

    Use this book as a unit study about earth science or as supplemental hands-on for your curriculum, either way you will have a lot of fun as you learn about the earth. ~ Donna

    How big is the Sahara? Which products are in greatest demand around the world? You just might need a good reference book to come up with the answers to these and many other questions. The First Earth Encyclopedia by DK has the same visual appeal as other DK products and is packed full of information and interesting facts for children from a secular perspective. Every page is laid out in a scrap booking style with photographs and accompanying text. An extension question is printed at the bottom of each evenly numbered page and the answer can be found at the bottom of the odd numbered pages (upside down). A 'Curiosity Quiz' will send you searching through the pages for answers, 'Become an Expert' tells you where to look for additional information within the book, and 'Hands on' activities show you how you can try some things for yourself. You will find these scattered through the color-coded pages of the book. Children will find information on the world's physical geography, our living world (ecosystems), human geography, and maps. A reference section at the back of the book includes a map of the world, photos of unique locations on earth, a view of the earth at night, and a glossary. I'm always a fan of the DK photography, and it has great appeal for even non-reading, younger children - this hardcover, 120+ page book is no exception. ~ Donna
