The ability to use the NextGen science process is key to carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks. In this book, readers in real-world situations are tasked with following clues and using the NextGen science process to find out about unearthing fossils. Informational text presents evidence and facts in the form of clues and side-bar details to help children develop critical thinking skills. A summary of the situation is included to show how each chapter contributes to the whole and for a solid understanding of the topic.
Following scientific process, this title provides instructions on how to conduct experiments that help students gain a better understanding of cause and effects of erosion.
Following the scientific process, this title provides instructions on how to conduct experiments that help students gain a better understanding of rocks and minerals.
In this book, students see the NextGen Science process at work in a real-world situation. Readers practice close reading as they look for clues that will lead to a deeper understanding of volcanoes and scientists study them. The NextGen Science process pushes students to apply critical thinking as they learn new methods of exploration and build on concepts they may already know. Additional tools, including a glossary and index, help students learn new vocabulary and locate information.
Following the scientific process, this titles provides instructions on how to conduct experiments that help students gain a better understanding of the planet earth.
Describes experiments that can be performed using rocks to demonstrate their properties, including how they are formed, how to test their hardness, and whether rock layers can be changed by events such as earthquakes.
Describes experiments that can be performed with soil in order to learn about its properties, including its composition, whether it can act as a natural filter, and if different substances can make it more fertile.
