In keeping with the trend of using trade books in the classroom, this practical guide shows how to teach about space using Seymour Simon's excellent astronomy series. Each one- or two-page section of the book focuses on a particular topic, offering suggestions for classroom demonstrations, activities, ideas to discuss and research, journal entry topics, and books for further reading. Topics include comparing impact and volcanic craters, finding magnetic north, making solar system maps, and understanding the expanding universe. The authors present concepts and facts with a winning combination of imaginative ideas and practical details. Colorful photographs and black-and-white drawings illustrate the text. An excellent book for school and public library collections.
