Synopsis

Scottish Rocks and Fossils by Alan McKirdy, Moira McKirdy

Part of the award-winning Scotties series of activity books, Scottish Rocks and Fossils tells the story of how Scotland's landscape has changed over the last three billion years. Did you know that disappearing oceans, colliding continents and erupting volcanoes were some of the events which helped to shape the countryside we see today? Discover how coal formed from swamps which grew in a tropical climate. Did you know there was an ice age in Scotland which lasted for over two million years - and the ice may come back? This book helps you find out how to: make your own model volcano which erupts messily - but safely; see a stalactite and stalagmite grown in just a couple of days; and, race your way around Scotland, collecting fossils as you go. Included is an 8pp black and white section with games, puzzles and drawings for colouring in, and can be used at home or photocopied by teachers for classroom use. This work is illustrated with drawings and with photographs and objects from the collections of National Museums Scotland.
