Give students a head start in both science and organization. This unique and innovative new series pairs practical Information with useful learning tools in the form of graphic organizers. Each book features a subject pulled directly from the K-4 Earth science curriculum plus nine graphic organizers that highlight facts about each chapter topic. Venn diagrams, charts, concept webs, maps, timelines, and more are used to present facts and to show students how these tools can be used for learning. Color photographs are included to support chapter text and illustrate the topics students are reading about. Students will realize that even the hardest concepts can be broken down into pieces of Information that are easy to learn and remember. The rocks that shape Earth form and change every day before our eyes, yet they do it so slowly that we cannot see it happening. This book discusses the effects of physical and chemical weathering on rocks, the different types of rocks, and how rocks break down and re-form on Earth over millions and billions of years in the rock cycle. Deltas, streambeds, wind abrasion, and soil formation are some of the many topics pictured and sorted into charts, a timeline, a cycle graph, and many other graphic organizers.
