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.
