Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This kid-friendly handbook investigates the solar system's inner workings, the tools used to gain information, and an array of astronomical phenomena. Through a time line of discoveries and important events, a comprehensive text, and numerous projects readers can build from household items, this resource provides up-to-date information about the realm beyond planet Earth. Starting with a discussion of the basic components—the sun, the planets, their moons and rings, meteors, asteroids, and comets—this handbook considers topics ranging from the demotion of Pluto to a space object to the greenhouse effect on Venus and the astronomical unit. Along with this exploration of the historical, contemporary, and future tools—such as the rockets and satellites used to gather data—and galaxies, nebulae, and pulsars found outside of the solar system, are instructions for creating a rubber-band powered Mars rover, using dry ice to simulate the tail of a comet, and models of various phenomena. A resources section provides references for additional information and projects about astronomy and the solar system.

Synopsis:

With over 25 hands-on building projects and activities Amazing Solar System Projects You Can Build Yourself introduces readers ages 9 and up to the basic elements of the solar system. Readers learn about the sun, the planets and their moons, meteors and comets, and the amazing tools that astronomers and astronauts have used to study the solar system over the years.

Amazing Solar System Projects You Can Build Yourself provides detailed step-by-step instructions and diagrams for creating the projects, which include making a greenhouse to see what happens on Venus and constructing a model of the phases of the moon to demonstrate why the moon has phases. Fascinating facts, anecdotes, biographies, and trivia are interspersed with the fun projects to teach readers all about the solar system. Amazing Solar System Projects meets Common Core State Standards for reading informational text and is aligned with Next Generation Science Standards. Guided Reading Levels and Lexile measurements indicate grade level and text complexity.
