Earth is a work in progress that changes all the time, thanks to meteorites, rain, heat, and pressure. In Earth's History, Discovery Channel takes you through Earth's amazing history, from its fiery beginnings to present day.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is another addition to the "Discovery Channel School Science Series, Set IV: Our Planet Earth." A great deal of information is presented about how earth's surface has changed over the many years of its existence. The format is nonlinear, with boxes, charts and appropriate illustrations throughout. Each spread utilizes a different style—including Q and A, "at a glance", map, scientist's notebook—with the final page being "your world, your turn" with a follow-up project the reader might be inspired to attempt. This is an attractive resource suitable for browsing with numerous "sound bites" of information. However, since many of the chapter headings have clever titles, ("Whole Lotta Quakin' Goin' On," "Get a Life") the inclusion of an index would have been extremely helpful. Advanced students will want something a bit meatier for more serious research. 2004, Gareth Stevens Publishing; A World Almanac Education Group, Ages 9 to 11.
