Synopsis

KS2 Rocks and Soils Primary Einstein by Caroline Walton

The love child of The Beano and Arthur Holmes' Principles of Physical Geography, Rocks and Soils attempts to educate and titillate primary school children studying geology. Experimentation and observation are central to learning. Used repeatedly throughout Rocks and Soils, their importance cannot be underestimated. Acquired practical knowledge and learning are applied to solve historical conundrums and modern day dilemmas. Many 'tricks of the trade' are employed to encourage and enthuse young pupils; colour-animated pages, characters, jokes, puzzles, problem solving, word searches, drawing opportunities, cake and model making - no stone has been left unturned in an attempt to inspire interest. Underlying and underpinning the pedagogic illusionary is serious science. The geologic content takes learners from rock creation to erosion, with a smattering of classification on the side. Fossil formation, material uses and soil horizons add further depth to the breadth of subjects covered. Processes taking millions of years are covered concisely in this one dynamic resource. Rocks and Soils is primarily focused on children aged 7-11 years old, but its content is also designed to suit less able, older learners.
