Product Description:

If you're looking to enhance your science curriculum, this book is a terrific resource. It includes 25 projects in the area of engineering, more specifically, canals & dams. The book is divided into seven chapters and is full of information, vocabulary and hands-on ideas for each topic Engineering & Thinking Big; Building Big: The Physics of Canals; Amazing Canals; Canal Catastrophes; Building Big: The Physics of Dams; Amazing Dams; and Dam Disasters. Before jumping into the chapters, this book offers a timeline of key dates in this topic and a section titled, Water Tamers that talks about the importance of water, the process of water gathering and related engineering. Throughout the book are Words to Know boxes that offer topic-related words and their definitions (could be added to spelling or vocabulary lists). Try This and Build It Yourself give opportunities to try out each chapter's information. Students can compare piling foundations, build an arch dam and test the strength of a tetrahedron as they build their engineering knowledge. 122 pgs, sc. ~ Donna
