From tall mountains and deep canyons to tiny pebbles on a beach, our Earth is a very rocky place. How do rocks form, though? What are rocks made of? How do people use rocks? And where in the world can we see Earth's most amazing rocks? This series takes a fresh look at rocks, giving children the chance to learn about igneous rocks, sedimentary rocks, metamorphic rocks, the rock cycle, weathering and erosion, minerals and crystals, everyday uses for rocks, and famous rocks. Every book in the series is expertly crafted to meet early elementary and science curriculum standards. Innovative, grade-appropriate activities and experiments, critical-thinking questions, and fascinating fact boxes will keep the pages turning and the pace lively and interactive.
