Discover Science: Rocks and Fossils by by Chris Pellant is a bright and age-appropriate introduction to the three basic forms of rock, crystals, and fossils. Filled with information about geological processes like erosion, weathering and examples of the many ways we use rock, this book is perfect for both the science classroom and budding geologists alike. The Discover Science series will capture children's imagination while laying the foundation for future learning. With age-appropriate language and an eye-catching design, this series gives young readers answers to fundamental questions about the human body, animals, planet Earth and the Solar System. At the back of each book, science experiments, colorful craft activities and notes for parents and teachers will help every reader get creative as they learn.

Category Description for Kingfisher Discover Science:

Maybe it is my 'old age' as a homeschool mom, but it seems that most elementary science books are light on science information but overwhelmed with childish illustrations and story lines, which is the main reason I love this impressive series. Presenting each topic in a 2-page spread, children will be captivated by the vibrant illustrations and clearly explained scientific text. Adding to the educational value, the back of the book contains notes for parents and teachers, craft activities, quizzes, weblinks, fascinating facts, and other supplemental resources. From a secular publisher, occasional references to evolution are evident. Real educational content and meticulous graphic images, this series meets the growing needs of your young Scientist! 56 pgs. sc. ~ Deanne




Category Description for Elemental Science:

If you prefer your science "outside the textbook" then you'll want to look at Elemental Science. Designed as a Classical science program "loosely based on the ideas for classical science education that are laid out in The Well-Trained Mind," this one may also appeal to Charlotte Mason home educators. The program itself provides a framework of science study while your science "text" and experiments are found in a selection of quality resource books including DK, Usborne, Kingfisher and Janice VanCleave

This book looks very simple for teaching little kids about rocks. I prefer books that show photographs so kids can see how the real thing looks like.
