Informational national geographic learning magazine teaching about rocks and minerals
Review by nsnide1
This book is rated five stars because it uses a variety of informational text features. I like that all of the pictures in this book are clear and relevant to the text that is presented. This book uses a writing style that is easy for children to understand while include pertinent facts about rocks and minerals. This book is also organized in such a way with pictures that include captions, breakdown of how to pronounce words, and includes a glossary. There are many other text features that are used. The big idea of this book is to help children to understand the processes that happen in order to certain types of rock (igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic) rocks that are on the earth. The other big idea is to distinguish the difference between rocks and minerals.
