The planet Earth is remarkable for the ever-changing nature of its landforms and waterways. Though processes such as the rock, carbon, and water cycles follow a pattern of steps over time, they have dynamic and diverse effects on Earth's landscape and all the living things that depend on it. This series dives into Earth's cycles and forces, including plate tectonics, erosion, and weather. Students will be fascinated to learn how these processes impact humans and vice versa. Features include: Specific examples and engaging diagrams help illuminate scientific concepts for a young audience. Terminology is fully explained through vocabulary boxes and a glossary. Supports the Next Generation Science Standards by introducing students to the methods by which humans understand the natural world and how they interact with their environments.
