About the book:

A Vital Resource for the Well-rounded Earth Science Classroom; A balanced subject with wide appeal and interest to many students, Earth science is the study of the Earth's lands, oceans, air, ice, and life as a total global system, or more broadly, the study of the space in which the human population lives. Filling the need for Earth science experiments and science fair activities at the middle school and high school level, Earth Science Experiments On File[trademark] is a comprehensive introduction to one of our most critical, Interesting, and increasingly popular branches of science. The Definitive Supplement and Classroom Aid to the Complex Field of Earth Science; Each of the 80-90 experiments featured provides students with an insight into the changing world around them and helps them realize the consequences of their actions on both a local and global scale. Earth Science Experiments On File[trademark] is comprised of three parts and a number of useful appendixes: Part One: Physical Aspects: Examines the landscape to help students understand the processes that operate and modify our planet Part Two: Human Aspects: Studies how people have changed and modified the landscape Part Three: Human Physical Interface (how people affect the Earth and vice versa): Experiments on pollution, forestry, and agriculture explore the boundaries between the Earth's human and physical aspects. Plus, appendixes provide a helpful listing of Internet resources, guides to the grade level of experiments, the degree of supervision required, indications of whether experiments can be performed at home, and the number of participants required. A clear and concise index facilitates study. Subject areas include: Rivers and coastlines; Settlements and Population; Glaciation and Plate Tectonics; Industry and Tourism; Meteorology; Pollution; Ecosystems; Forestry and Agriculture.
