Thames & Kosmos Thames andamp; Kosmos Volcanoes andamp; Earthquakes

Earth is constantly changing. Massive pieces of its outer layer are slowly sliding under, over, away from, or past each other. Earthquakes shake the continents and oceans, and volcanoes spew out the molten insides of our planet. By studying... these awe-inspiring and devastating natural phenomena, you can learn more about the inner workings of Earth. Build and erupt a model volcano with plaster-based "lava" that hardens after each eruption. The volcano can be erupted multiple times, and the volcanic cone builds up with each eruption, like a real volcano. Learn about the different types of volcanoes. Build a working seismograph, and fake some 'quakes to see for yourself how scientists measure earthquake forces. Discover plate tectonics, and see how volcanoes and earthquakes are caused by the constant movement of the planet's parts. Assemble a plate tectonics puzzle and a geological globe. Play a volcano quiz game to learn about well-known volcanoes. A full-color, 48-page experiment manual is included.

Play the role of archaeologist as you explore this pyramid model and the treasures buried within. After using hieroglyphics to dec...ipher the secret to unlocking the pyramid, use tools and techniques similar to those of a real archaeologist to carefully excavate a sarcophagus and four canopic urns from the hardened sandy catacomb inside. Practice the best techniques for excavating an archaeological site, such as digging, troweling, screening, brushing, and record keeping. As you uncover the artifacts in the pyramid, you will learn about important aspects of archaeological science, including surveys, excavation, conservation, dating, and remote sensing. Learn how to create a gridded excavation site and a diorama. Investigate the layout of the pyramid, its various chambers, hidden passageways, and security devices by constructing a three-dimensional cross section of the pyramid. A full-color, 32-page manual gives step-by-step instructions for the activities and experiments. Recommended Ages:8 and up Weight: 3.29 lb Read More
