    Much like the above collection, only with fewer specimens. The 35 or 24 rocks and minerals form a more abbreviated, but still adequate, range of materials for your study of geology or for identification/reference. Instead of buying one of those overpriced "book and skimpy rock collection" combo sets that pervade the market, settle on a good, basic book about rocks and rock-collecting, and use one of these sets as your samples. Unmount the specimens if you prefer - either way, you'll have a much larger and more complete collection for about the same price. Study Guide included.

    As I oooo and aaahhh my way through the beautiful pictures in this book, I am reminded of what an amazing place the earth is. It is diverse, rugged, and awesome. DK always does an amazing job with photographic presentation, and this book is no exception. Take a visual journey from the beginning of the solar system, to rocks and minerals, water formation, weather and climate, life on earth, the human world, and mapping the world. Every photo, illustration, and map is accompanied by a small amount of information. A country factfile summarizes all of the countries of the world by offering facts about each – area, population, capital, currency, official language, life expectancy, and information about an accompanying picture. A glossary is included for words that might be unfamiliar. I am always curious about new destinations and intrigued by photos from different areas (I might want to go there someday), but not all of the photos provide that information. Another thing to keep in mind is that this is from a secular perspective; theories as fact abound. 300+pgs, p/b. ~ Donna

    For grades 7-9, this softcover textbook introduces the basic concepts of physical science: mechanics, forms of energy, chemistry, earth science, and astronomy. The book is divided into 34 chapters and each includes very readable text in short sections, colorful graphics, "Explore!" (experiments), Concept Checks (questions with answers), and a chapter review (no answers). Appendices include measurement and unit conversion, linear and rotational motion, working with vector components, exponential growth and doubling time, and safety. The glossary will help with new vocabulary. This book is 888 pages.

    We are carrying just the student text, which is the required text for the Physical Science Explorations Self-Study Online Course from Conceptual Academy (#069872).

      My children loved to get lost in a good encyclopedia. Maybe that sounds odd today, but I am still a firm believer in having accessible, quality books available for children to read when curiosity peaks. Lavishly illustrated and divided into two parts, Physical and Life Science, this resource is jam packed with information, fun facts, hands-on activities and intermingled science related jokes. The introductory section explains what science is, how scientists work and the scientific theory before describing the difference between physical and life science and going deeper into respective areas. Evolutionary content.

      Physical science is separated into four sections: matter, forces and machines, energy, and electronics. Subtopics are presented in a 2-page spread that includes photographs and colorful graphics, clearly explained textual information, historical or unique fun facts, activities or jokes. A sampling of topics includes chemistry basics, organic chemistry, noble gases, gravity, friction, radio waves, satellites, nuclear power, sound waves and more.

      Life Science is separated into four sections: the universe, life on earth, human body and planet earth. Subtopics are presented similarly to the physical science section. A sampling of topics includes the big bang, solar system, classification of living things, microbes, reptiles, ancient medicine, genes, reproduction and growth, volcanoes, earthquakes, the earth’s age, rocks and minerals, biomes conservationism, and more. Includes websites, books and film recommendations, a glossary, and index. An excellent resource for your home or school library. 303 pgs, hc. ~ Deanne

    What could you do with 854 photo-quality die-cuts? Ask your children that question and see what they come up with for ideas. Rocks and minerals, leaves and shells, flowers and twigs can be used in countless ways in your art or science projects. How about just making some interesting jewelry or pictures frames? Maybe a color study collage using all greens or all browns in a study of tone and texture would be fun. Students of any age can use these to bring out whatever may be hiding in their imaginations. This is quite a value for the number of die-cuts in this pack. Each image is two-sided too! Paper is about the weight of a nice gift wrap. ~ Sara

    Some of the field guides we have at our house would never make it on a rock finding trek – they're simply too large to lug around. This rock and mineral guide from DK is just the right size for fitting into your jacket or shirt pocket – 3 ¾"x 5". It may be small, but it isn't short on information! You will find an introduction to rocks and minerals, a section of minerals divided by their coloration, and rocks divided into the 3 categories – igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic. Pages are full of colored photos and facts about the specimen pictured. There is even a reference section at the back of this 160-page book. Never be without a reference again as you hike through the beautiful outdoors. ~ Donna

    This reference card is great for students learning about the appearance of various rocks and minerals. Attached to a 4" x 6" laminated card are samples of 20 common rocks found in the United States: Quartz, Amazon Stone, Epidote, Andesite, Flourite, Obsidian, Orthoclase, Talc, Jasper, Ulexite, Pyrite, Migmatite, Opal, Chrysocolla, Sulfur, Coal, Dolomite, Magnetite, Calcite, and Terra Cotta. Each sample is about .5" wide. The back of the card has a very brief explanation about rock classification. ~ Rachel
