Rocks and Minerals (Our Planet Earth Series)

Overview

There's no such thing as a plain old rock. In fact, every rock tells a story -- about where it formed, what it is made of, and where it has been. And at least one component in every rock has been on Earth since Earth formed. Rocks even give us clues about what's going on under Earth's surface. In Rocks and Minerals, Discovery Channel shows you why every rock is a piece of history.

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 the history of rocks, what they tell us about Earth, and how minerals help to create rocks. 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, ( "Rock Stars," "All that Glimmers") 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.
