Earth science is the study of the Earth's lands, oceans, air, ice, and life as a total global system, or more broadly, the study of the space in which the human population lives.

Filling the need for Earth science experiments at the middle and high school level, the new, full-color Earth Science Experiments enables students to comprehend important Earth science subjects in a hands-on way. In a clear, easy-to-understand style, this book covers such topics as erosion by wind and water, severe weather, weather mapmaking, crystal growth, and stargazing and constellations. Teaching students such important skills as observing, measuring, classifying, analyzing, and predicting, Earth Science Experiments is an invaluable go-to resource for science classrooms.
