Recently we have been checking out Earth Rocks from Aims Educational Foundation. Both of my children are avid rock collectors and explorers so this is a fun book for them!
The book is for grades 4-5 and 50 activities are included. Students are able to subjects like: soil,rocks,minerals and the water cycle plus the properties of water.
It provides many activities such as books you can make, experiments, and worksheets.
I really like the fact that even though it is a workbook with worksheets it still requires to explore the environment in a hands on fashion! It is simple enough for my son with special needs to grasp the concepts but also provides enough information for my daughter to want to explore subjects further.
The price is 29.95 which I think is reasonable for the amount of information covered. (it's a THICK BOOK!) This would be a super fun book to even use during off time during a summer break if you are like us and spend a lot of time outdoors exploring during the summer.
The Crew also reviewed other science and math books from the Aims Education Foundation. I encourage you to check out the TOS CREW to see reviews on the other books!
