Searchlight Do You Dig Earth Science?

Studying Soil
 “…The topic of soil is covered with some depth, and this book would also be good support for a unit on plants or gardening. The authors begin with an explanation and illustration of the question “What is soil?” From there they address formation, composition, layers (horizons), appearance, and a closing chapter on soil conservation. …The concepts are presented with clear, accessible language, color photographs and a clear flow among the connections between each chapter. …The photos are well–captioned and clearly support the text material. For the class that is beginning a study that involves plants or soil, this book would be an excellent, nonfiction addition to the unit material or for the nonfiction library. This book is an excellent addition for 3rd through 5th grade students. — NSTA Recommends

Marveling at Minerals
“…The key ideas of mineral identification are explained with age appropriate language and well–selected photos. Color, streak, hardness, and gloss are all covered as part of how to identify minerals. From there the authors address how minerals become rocks. This is where most books for this group become too technical or too light. The authors struck a middle path here and it works well for the learners.”  — NSTA Recommends
