What's inside Earth? Why do we have earthquakes? What causes the ocean tides? These questions and many others are examined as students study Earth from the inside out. Students also become geologists as they consider plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, and their causes. They become oceanographers and meteorologists to gain a better understanding of elements affecting the surface of our world through a study of weather patterns and tides and currents in the ocean. Your students will come to appreciate the atmosphere that makes life on Earth possible as they learn about our planet's position in the solar system. After Earth Central, students will have a deeper love and understanding of their planet.
The Evolution of Washington, DC is a striking volume featuring select pieces of the extraordinary collection of Washingtoniana donated by Albert H. Small to the George Washington University in 2011. It showcases treasures such as an 1860 lithograph of the equestrian statue of Andrew Jackson in front of the White House and a contemporary print of old Potomac River steamboats. Other unique pieces include early designs for the White House, the Capitol, and the Washington Monument as well as presidential portraits and Civil War memorabilia. Each object--from architectural plans and topographical maps to letters and advertisements--tells a fascinating story, and together they illustrate the history of our nation's capital and indeed our nation itself.
