Rockin' Rocks

Format Price Qty

Dig into the world of geology with the Rock On! series! Rockin' Rocks introduces readers to what rocks are and how they form. Chapters build concepts from the ground up, from atoms, elements, and minerals to Earth's layers, tectonic plates, and the three classes of rock. Real-world examples like the Grand Canyon, Devils Tower, and Arches National Park bring to life igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rock. Full-color photographs will draw in readers while the easy-to-read text breaks down complex concepts. A colorful diagram of the rock cycle ties everything together while an at-home experiment provides the opportunity for hands-on experience. Glossary words in bold, an index, and phonetic spellings for those hard-to-pronounce geologic terms enhance and supplement the text. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
