Learning About Earth's Cycles With Graphic OrganizersBook - 2005
Give students a head start in both science and organization. This unique and innovative new series pairs practical Information with useful learning tools in the form of graphic organizers. Each book features a subject pulled directly from the K-4 Earth science curriculum plus nine graphic organizers that highlight facts about each chapter topic. Venn diagrams, charts, concept webs, maps, timelines, and more are used to present facts and to show students how these tools can be used for learning. Color photographs are included to support chapter text and illustrate the topics students are reading about. Students will realize that even the hardest concepts can be broken down into pieces of Information that are easy to learn and remember. Cycles surround us every minute of every day. This book introduces students to the facts and figures behind cycles they recognize, such as the day-and-night cycle and the changing of the seasons, plus cycles they may not have been aware of, such as eclipses and the tides. Students will learn how cycles have helped people to tell time throughout the ages and how a cycle chart can illustrate cycles that occur over and over again. A concept web and a compare/contrast chart are two more of the many graphic organizers used to demonstrate Earth's cycles.
