  • Geology Crafts for Kids: 50 Nifty Projects to Explore the Marvels of Planet Earth (Ages 9-12)

    Like a volcano ready to erupt, the earth is brimming with fascinating, amazing, and beautiful things. Fifty remarkable projects and more than thirty sidebars filled with plenty of "Did you knows" allow curious kids to find the answers to lots of "Whys" and "How comes." They'll find out what causes earthquakes, how mountains are formed, where rocks come from, and much more. They'll explore the core of the earth with a geological model that's fun to build and delicious to eat (it's made of chocolate chips, jelly, a peanut butter mixture, and graham cracker crumbs!). The magic of minerals can be examined by growing crystals, making rock candy, or constructing paper models of crystals. These projects make learning fun! Who wouldn't want to make an exploding volcano, construct a seismograph that really works, build with homemade adobe bricks, or form fossils as detailed as the ones found in nature? Full-color photographs and step-by-step instructions are included for every project, with those that require adult supervision clearly indicated. Perfect for science fair competitions, extra-credit school work, or just for the joy of discovery, these wonderful activities will lead kids on their own "journey to the center of the earth" as they dig into the mysteries of our planet.

    Earth science comes alive for children 6 to 9 through 60 engrossing games, activities, and experiments. Kids "core sample" a filled cupcake and discover plate tectonics by floating graham cracker continents on a molten mantle of molasses. They learn how heat changes rocks by seeing how separate ingredients disappear when they bake Rice Krispie Treats. More activities show what causes earthquakes and what kinds of buildings resist their force. Growing sugar and salt crystals, "fossilizing" plastic insects, and modeling a variety of volcanoes add to the learning and the fun. Eight of the activities are tasty as well as informative. Silly songs help children remember new words and concepts, and a resource section gives inexpensive sources for rocks, minerals, and fossils. All the projects have been tested in homes and schools to make sure they are safe, effective, and fun.
