Exploring Planet Earth
We love John H. Tiner’s science books for middle school students. He writes from a biblical perspective and has won numerous awards for his books on science and medicine for young people. They are excellent introductions to the people and places central to the planet earth, the history of medicine, chemistry, mathematics, and physics. These illustrated books have review questions and activities after every chapter, and Memoria Press has added additional supplemental review questions to each chapter, unit reviews, unit tests, and a final exam for each book in the series.
The first in a series of books on science, this book has broad appeal for any elementary-age child, but is written specifically as a resource tool for fifth grade through junior high level.
Blending a creationism perspective of history with definitions of terms and identification of famous explorers, scientists, etc., this book gives students an excellent initial knowledge of people and places, encouraging them to continue their studies in-depth.
Supplemented with photographs, illustrations, questions, and chapter review activities, Exploring Planet Earth brings to life people like Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus, and gives students the opportunity to read history that hasn’t been altered or erased altogether.
