Volcanoes, rock, desert, and mountains are all different types of landforms. Do you know how these many types of land take their shape? Learn about different forces that cause these shapes and the layers of the earth. See science at work in the real world and use what you learn to unlock a mystery about Earth and how its surface changes over time. Includes a note to caregivers, a glossary, a discover activity, and career connections, as well as connections to science history.

This 48-page volume in the iScience Readers series provides students with information about the forces that shape Earth's surface. The concepts are presented logically and in a developmentally appropriate way. The content includes answers to questions such as "What causes landforms to change?" "How does water change Earth's surface?" and "How do we map the changing Earth"? This last question challenges readers to find out why Uluru, an ancient rock in Australia, stands alone.



The authors use a problem-based learning scenario and questioning techniques that encourage science inquiry. The illustrations are photographs.



This is a high-quality, durable book—perfect for the classroom. Contents in the book include a puzzle, a discovery activity, a glossary, references for further reading, additional notes, and an index. I highly recommend this book to teachers of students in grades 3 to 5. Upper-grade teachers with special education students as well as elementary teachers using differentiated instruction will also find this book to be very useful.

This book is a member of a series of leveled Science Books called iScience Readers. These books follow a similar organization of information. Open ended questions are sprinkled throughout along with experiment and project ideas. The text is well distributed into the graphics and illustrations. Glossary words are in bold print. Connections are made to history, occupations, and how the reader can become more involved. There is a table of content, glossary, index, and an additional notes page that gives the answer to all the questions throughout the book, which is a really nice succinct feature of the book. I highly recommend this series.
