How We Use Soil by Carol Ballard


How We Use Soil by Carol Ballard

Designed specially for young independent readers, aged between 6 and 8, this new wide-ranging collection called Perspectives aims to provide new perspectives on the topics being studied. The series combines core non-fiction features (including a real emphasis on research skills) with a visually stunning design that encourages readers to look at these topics in a different way. 'Using Materials' focuses on the uses of a wide range of different materials, their applications, properties and why certain materials are selected for particular roles. Striking images help pupils to see these materials' uses, from the everyday to the unusual. This title explains where these materials come from and whether they are natural or man-made; and also promotes discussion regarding the sustainability of the materials and the environmental consequences.
