About the Books

In The Science of Weather and Climate: Rain, Sleet, and the Rising Tide, middle schoolers learn the science behind the weather we experience every day while examining the changing climate conditions across the entire planet. Science-minded STEM activities encourage readers to think like scientists while critical thinking exercises, essential questions, fascinating facts, links to online resources, and more encourage readers to explore this incredible planet through the weather that impacts our daily lives.

While natural disasters might seem horrifically random, scientists can explain quite a lot about why they happen, how they develop, how we can try to prevent them, and how we can predict where and when they’ll happen next. The Science of Natural Disasters: When Nature and Humans Collide invites kids 12 to 15 to explore the science behind earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, and wildfires. 

Rocks and Minerals: Get the Dirt on Geology offers middle schoolers a chance to look under the hood of our planet and explore the forces that have shaped—and continue to shape—our world. Learn how the earth transformed from a ball of dust and gases to the planet we know today and discover how the earth continues to change through plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, and even wind and water!
