Children's LiteratureTinkling, crashing, smashing, sparkling—all of these words describe sounds often associated with an everyday material in our world. From the light bulbs in our house to the walls of aquariums, glass is everywhere. This short introduction to glass basics gives readers the "recipe" for glass, the varied types of glass, and how we use glass in our world. Colorful photos accompany the text, visually reinforcing concepts and vocabulary. Fun facts help connect the information to children's lives today. A suggested hands-on activity concludes the book and gives readers further avenues for exploration. This book would be used well in the elementary science classroom or as a resource for those curious students who can't help but ask "why?" 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 8.
