Find shapes all around the globe! This book takes young readers to various cities around the world to encourage them to practice geometry through early STEM themes and find two-dimensional shapes everywhere they go. Go to Paris to find circles in clocks! Go to Chicago to find rectangles in skyscrapers! Children will find these, triangles, parallel lines, and more in this engaging reader.
This engaging title shows children two-dimensional shapes typically found in a school. Find circles, triangles, rectangles, and squares! Young readers will also be introduced to the concept of equality through early STEM concepts by adding triangles into a square. This book encourages readers to think about geometry at their own schools, making finding shapes fun and easy with familiar images, engaging practice problems, and helpful mathematical diagrams.
Practice nonstandard measurement at the community center! A rock climbing wall is the same height as eight children! A tennis racket is the same length as three ping pong paddles! This fun title uses vivid images, simple practice questions, and helpful mathematical diagrams to keep young readers engaged while helping them better understand nonstandard measurement and early STEM concepts.
Some of the first geologists came from ancient Greece and Egypt. Later, scientists in China studied how land was formed and figured out how erosion wears away mountains, rocks, and other landforms. Scottish scientist James Hutton's The Theory of the Earth became the basis for modern geology. William Smith started out as a farmer, but went on to create what is thought to be the first geologic map. German Friedrick Mohs studied minerals and came up with a hardness identification scale that is still used by every geologist.
