Rocks and Minerals: Get the Dirt On Geology

ByChris Eboch

Illustrated by Alexis Cornell. Did you know that minerals were necessary for the beginning of life? Or that geothermal power could provide all the energy the world needs? 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. Readers ages 12 to 15 learn how the earth transformed from a ball of dust and gases to the planet we know today. And they see how the earth continues to change through plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, and even wind and water! Science-minded STEM activities encourage young readers to think like geologists, while critical thinking exercises, essential questions related to geology, fascinating facts, links to online resources, and more encourage readers to explore their incredible planet.
