Description
From northern California through Oregon and western Montana, Washington and Idaho, all the way to Alaska, this book explores the wonders of the Pacific Northwest, a region known for its explosive volcanic activity as well as glaciers, tundra, major rivers, and the only temperate rainforest within the United States. Beginning with an explanation of plate tectonics, it discusses how mountains affect climate, how landforms affect people, and how people affect the physical elements of the region. With 15 hands-on projects and demonstrations for home or classroom—including making your own fog and a mini-tsunami—this engaging science book for readers 8 to 12 employs drawings, diagrams, vocabulary words, sidebars, anecdotes, and did-you-know trivia to explore geology and physical geography as fascinating parts of our everyday world.

"Let me start by saying that any activity book that uses candy bars to demonstrate plate tectonics is going to be a hit at our house, without question, and Geology of the Pacific Northwest does just that."—EclecticHomeschool.org
