Kindergartners and first graders are naturally curious about the world around them. What on Earth? will bring to their attention details of their everyday world that they previously have not considered.

They will be introduced to nature’s gifts of water, rocks, and soil and explore their many characteristics and beneficial uses. In “Secret Sources,” they will learn that everything comes from something when they discover paper comes the wood of a tree and a tee shirt comes from cotton on a plant.

Clever explorations fill the book that is divided into the following six sections/concepts:

  • Resources: The Earth has resources that are used to make all kinds of things. Resources can be conserved by recycling, reusing, and reducing their consumption.
  • Rocks and Soils; Rocks and soils have observable properties.
  • Water: Water is found in oceans, lakes, ponds, and rivers.
  • Changes: Earth’s surface can quickly change due to hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes, and wind and wave action.
  • Day/Night: The sun and moon are objects in the sky that have repeating patterns of movement.
  • Seasons: The seasons form a repeating pattern. The changes in weather help determine our clothing and activities.

Start your youngest learners off right by providing them knowledge of the world around them through hands-on explorations and discoveries. “I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand.”—This Chinese proverb guides all AIMS material.
