Drip, Drip, Drop: Earth's Water
We see it in ponds, lakes, and rivers. We splash in it when we visit the seashore. Every living thing on Earth, from tiny insects to the tallest trees, needs it to survive. What are we talking about? Water! This Science Slam! series takes a fresh look at Earth's water. What is water made of? Where do we find salt water and fresh water? How did all the water beneath the ground get there? And why do our bodies need water to stay healthy? Each of the six books in this series is expertly crafted to meet early elementary and science curriculum standards. Innovative, grade-appropriate activities and experiments, critical-thinking questions, and fascinating fact boxes will keep the pages turning and the pace lively and interactive. These features will also introduce children to two fundamental components of scientific inquiry--making observations and drawing inferences from those observations. And best of all, the activities are fun!
