Sedimentary Rocks

By Richard Spilsbury

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

This series explains how the rocks found on the Earth's surface have formed over millions of years.

This book takes a journey inside the layers of sedimentary rock to find out more about the rocks that have covered our planet for millions of years. Read about how these rocks form through compaction and lithification, and how weathering and erosion destroy them.

The text supports the KS2 and KS3 science curriculum, covering topics such as the many kinds of sedimentary rock, rock identification, and fossils. The text also explores how people use sedimentary rocks, and where on Earth the most beautiful examples are found. Stunning photographs, sidebars, and fact boxes further enhance the learning experience.

Soil

Richard Spilsbury
Authors:
Richard Spilsbury

This book goes on a journey underground to examine the many kinds of soil, microorganisms and inorganic matter that make it, and the critical role it plays in ecosystems around the world. Most people don't think about the soil under their feet, but basic dirt can reveal a lot about Earth's past. Soil is formed from tiny grains of rock that existed many years ago. It can also form in the wake of landslides, volcanoes, and everyday weathering. Helpful diagrams, fact boxes, and sidebars support the information-rich text, which supports KS2 and KS3 science curriculum, and colourful images will keep readers engaged from start to finish.
