Spaceship Earth

Gina Dal Fuoco

Publisher: Teacher Created Materials ISBN: 9780743905657

Earth is made up of atmosphere that protects us from the sun and contains our air supply. The next part is the hydrosphere, which is all the water on the planet. The third is the geosphere, the rocks. All three parts are closely connected. If we do not take care of one part of Earth, such as the ocean, we hurt the entire planet. Scientists all over the world are working to find ways to reduce pollution and make our Earth healthier.

Going Around the Sun: Some Planetary Fun

Marianne Berkes (author), Janeen Mason (illustrator)

Publisher: Dawn Publications ISBN: 9781584691860

Marianne Berkes has a gift for making science fun, and this book is exhibit A. Mother sun and her "family" of planets spin, roll, tilt, blow and whirl around the Sun to the tune of Over in the Meadow. Each of those actions is astronomically correct. For example, Earth is the one that tilts, and that is what creates the seasons. It is also astronomically up-to-date, with Pluto being a dwarf planet. Bright illustrations create an exciting mood, and there is plenty of interesting supplementary information in the back along with tips on related ways to integrate science, art, and literature in the classroom.
