              A full-color introduction to the earth science happening all around us, packed with STEM experiments and real-world connections that invite kids ages 7 to 10 to discovery the wonderful world of meteorology! What's it like outside? Is it a day for building a snowman, constructing ...a sandcastle, or planting a garden? Weather and Climate! With 25 Science Projects for Kids introduces kids ages 7 to 10 to the fascinating world of meteorology and all of the ways what's going on in the atmosphere above our heads can affect us here on the earth! Plus, discover how weather and climate change are linked but not the same, and figure out ways to be part of the solution to the problem of global warming. - The activity in our atmosphere plays a critical role in our lives and in the health of our planet. Today's weather determines what clothes you wear and what you are going to do after school, while the local climate influences what kind of car your parents drive, what kind of house you live in, and--believe it or not--what foods you eat! - Readers learn about different kinds of extreme weather including Hurricane Katrina, flooding in Texas, California wildfires, and the tornadoes that struck southern United States in 2011. - Offers engaging text that's reinforced with 25 hands-on, science-minded projects including creating a storm in a bottle, touching the clouds, and eating an edible climate map, while fun facts, essential questions, links to online resources, and even jokes help support deeper learning!

              A book about climate change for middle readers who want to learn the science behind a warming planet and make a difference for their own future! What's causing extreme weather around the globe? Why are some species rapidly dwindling in number? And what does the future hold for pl...anet Earth? In Climate Change: The Science Behind Melting Glaciers and Warming Oceans with Hands-On Science Activities, students ages 9 to 12 take a deep dive into the science behind the changing climate in order to best contribute to the methods underway to solve the problem of a rapidly changing planet-and think up new solutions! Essential questions, cool facts, and links to online primary sources and other relevant material make complex concepts easier to understand. This book is rich in text-to-self and text-to-world connections, along with hands-on science and critical creative-thinking exercises designed to explore the research being done to combat this global problem and encourage kids to find new solutions! * How do we know the climate is changing? By looking at the science from the past 200 years or so, all of which points to the fact that humans have had an adverse impact on the health of the planet, and this impact is great enough to affect many different ecosystems, living species, and the human species itself. * The study of planetary science, arctic ice bubbles, coral reefs, and more all contribute to the wealth of knowledge we are gaining, knowledge that can be used in the science and engineering innovations underway around the world to address global climate change. * Focused on a proactive approach to environmental education, Climate Change engages readers through hands-on activities, such as building a solar pizza oven, along with stories of people, including kids, who are making a positive environmental difference.

              Biodiversity: Explore the Diversity of Life on Earth with Environmental Science Activities for Kids (Paperback)

              Look around you--biodiversity is everywhere! From the tallest tree to the smallest microbe, Earth is home to more than 1.5 million known species of plants, animals, fungi, bacteria, and microorganisms. And scientists estimate there could be millions, if not billions, more that ha...ve not yet been identified. Biodiversity: Explore the Diversity of Life on Earth with Science Activities for Kids introduces middle schoolers to the evolution of life on Earth, beginning with the first single-celled organisms that emerged 3.8 billion years ago to the complex, multi-celled organisms that exist today and make up the tree of life. Biodiversity is found everywhere on the planet--on land, in the water, and even in extreme environments such as ice and volcanoes. Biodiversity can also be discovered by looking through a microscope at tiny worlds of organisms that can't be seen with the human eye. There are whole microbiomes beneath our feet, in puddles, and even in our belly buttons! All of this biodiversity on Earth helps keep the planet in balance. Biodiversity is also important to humans because it provides food, shelter, clothing, medicines, and more. However, the rates of biodiversity loss are increasing because of human activities. Climate change, pollution, habitat destruction, over-exploitation--these are all critical threats to biodiversity. There are, however, ways to slow or stop this loss through conservation and sustainable development. Biodiversity includes hands-on STEM activities and critical thinking exercises to encourage readers to consider the threat to biodiversity and figure out ways to be part of the solution. Fun facts, links to online primary sources and other supplemental material, and essential questions take readers on an exploration of the incredible biodiversity on Earth. Biodiversity is part of a set of four Build It Environmental Science books that explore the history and science of the planet and all that live on it through hands-on STEM activities a

              How did somebody come up with the idea for bridges, skyscrapers, helicopters, and nightlights? How did people figure out how to build them? In 3D Engineering: Design and Build Your Own Prototypes, young readers tackle real-life engineering problems by figuring out real-life solut...ions. Kids apply science and math skills to create prototypes for bridges, instruments, alarms, and more. Prototypes are preliminary models used by engineers--and kids--to evaluate ideas and to better understand how things work. Engineering design starts with an idea. How do we get to the other side of the river? How do we travel long distances in short periods of time? Using a structured engineering design process, kids learn how to brainstorm, build a prototype, test a prototype, evaluate, and re-design. Projects include designing a cardboard chair to understand the stiffness of structural systems and designing and building a set of pan pipes to experiment with pitch and volume. Creating prototypes is a key step in the engineering design process and prototyping early in the design process generally results in better processes and products. 3D Engineering gives kids a chance to figure out many different prototypes, empowering them to discover the mechanics of the world we know.
