Formerly Space and Earth Science, 3rd Ed., this new 4th edition features a new cover, new title, and newly reworked and added content. Two scientists--one portraying a secular worldview, the other a biblical perspective, will help to guide students through the text. Moving from the ground up, students will learn about the history of the earth; soil, rocks, and fossils; oceans, seas, lakes, and rivers; the atmosphere; and space. Special boxes throughout the student text provide different notes on items of biblical, earth science, maps/mapping, geographic locations, and information on the changing climate debate. Unfamiliar words are defined with their etymology; short biographies may also be highlighted in the sidebar. Section review questions and chapter review summaries with review questions are also included. 714 pages, glossary and index included.
The teacher's edition accompanies the text. Student pages are reduced, with wrap-around margins that contain teaching objectives, teaching schedules, additional information and resources, and answers to all review questions. A support materials CD with completely worked-out solutions to all questions, digital visuals, tests and answer keys, spreadsheets, and more is included.
The lab manual includes exercises which provide a framework for increasing student understanding of the material, as well as a more complete study than activity worksheets can provide. Helping students learn through hands-on, actual experimentation, they'll identity rocks, make graphs, predict the weather, go stargazing, and launch rockets amongst many activities. 260 pages, perforated and three-hole-punched, softcover.
The lab manual teacher's edition features reduced student pages with the correct answers overlaid, while the margins provide instructions, tips, and room to write in notes. Teacher notes are indicated with special graphics; they provide notes on equipment needed, Google Earth activities, math guidance, web resources, review of key concepts, and outside additional resources you might find helpful. 265 pages, spiralbound, softcover. An alphabetical equipment/materials needed list is also included.
