Rocks and Minerals: Get the Dirt on Geology

Rocks and Minerals: Get the Dirt on Geology - Chris Eboch

Rocks and Minerals: Get the Dirt on Geology


A fun and informative introduction to the earth science happening beneath our feet, packed with hands-on science experiments and STEM research projects that help readers ages 12 to 15 discover the amazing world of geology

Did you know that minerals were necessary for the beginning of life? Or that geothermal power could provide all the energy the world needs? Planet Earth is our home, but how much do you really know about the world beneath your feet? Rocks and Minerals: Get the Dirt on Geology offers a glimpse under the surface of the earth and explores the forces that have shaped--and continue to shape--our world.

- Make career connections and learn all that geologists do, including help communities find water and plan how to use it, find the safest places to construct buildings and roads, help oil and gas companies find resources to keep our homes and schools powered, help the environment by investigating climate change in the past, predicting the future, and exploring ways to trap poisonous carbon deep underground.

- Middle schoolers dive deep into earth science with a discussion of plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, and erosion, while exploring the earth as an energy resource and looking ahead toward what the future might bring in terms of the planet.

- Science-minded STEM activities such as constructing a model turbine, making a geologic timescale with a roll of toilet paper, and comparing energy sources encourage young readers to think like geologists, while critical thinking exercises, essential questions related to geology, fascinating facts, links to online resources, and brief sidebars encourage readers to explore their incredible planet.
