Discover Science: Weather
One of the most easily observed yet difficult topics to explain to children is weather. Discover Science: Weather by Caroline Harris introduces young readers to the atmospheric world around them, from sun and wind to climate and temperature. Readers can look at snowflakes in amazing detail, discover the water cycle, learn how rain forms in clouds, explore renewable energy, and take a first look at the devastating effects of pollution and extreme weather. With key vocabulary defined in the glossary, and hands-on projects at the end, this is the perfect introduction to this core science topic.
Make science accessible with this essential series that will capture children's imagination while laying the foundation for future learning. With clear, simple language and a compelling design, Discover Science gives young readers the answers to fundamental questions about animal homes, birds, light and sound, materials and more.
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
