Geology – The Changing Earth is designed as a non-fiction reader for ELA grade 4, but can also be used as a science text for study in earth sciences.
Students explore how different geological processes shape the earth’s landscape and related environments. the book explains how the earth is composed of layers that, through heat and pressure, cause movements that result in geological features above and below earth’s surface, such as mountains, volcanoes, and trenches. The text also describes rock formation, weathering, and erosion in order to understand how the earth changes over time.
The activity book associated with this book provides exercises on writing informational and descriptive paragraphs and practicing using figurative language. The Changing Earth Lessons include explicit instruction in grammar, morphology, and spelling. There is also a teacher’s guide available.
