Key Discoveries in Physical Science (Science Discovery Timelines)
How did our knowledge of matter, gravity, and electricity develop over time? Who first studied these concepts and why? And who used those early findings to expand and even change our understanding? Readers will trace the history of key discoveries in physical science as they investigate timelines and gather key details from the text. In doing so, students will make connections between the work of various scientists and analyze the long-term effects of their discoveries.
A timeline tells a story-a story of growth and change-helping us understand a bit more about cause and effect relationships. In this series, you will meet the men and women who radically shaped their fields of science in chronological order of their discoveries. Each chapter begins with graphical timeline that gives a "snapshot" of the stories you will find in the subsequent pages. Chapters provide well-written stories detailing the discoveries and challenges of each scientist. As the book concludes, children are encouraged to create a journal entry related to the scientific milestones. Source notes, resource lists, glossary and index included. Excellent resource for science minded or the curious learner. 48 pgs. SC. ~ Deanne
