Planet Earth: 25 Environmental Projects You Can Build Yourself
Nomad | 2008 | ISBN: 1934670049, 1934670057 | 128 pages | PDF | 14,5 MB

Children's knowledge of the Earth and its ecology will blossom with this engaging guide to understanding and enriching the environment. The first half of the handbook pres an overview of the natural world and encourages children to get their hands dirty and actively connect with the environment while the second half introduces key environmental issues—wind and solar power, pollution, endangered species, global warming, and recycling—and posits potential solutions. Trivia, fun facts, and 25 captivating hands-on projects investigate ecology basics, such as the food chain, oxygen, and animal habitats, as well as ways to lessen the strain on the Earth's resources by reducing human waste and consumption. Activities include building a worm composting castle, a wind-powered bubble machine, a Tullgren funnel, and a gardening project that illustrates the burden of overpopulation.
In this book you’ll learn about the Earth and our place in it, biome facts, Earth’s atmosphere, the stratosphere, the sun, plant and animal species on Earth, pollution, global warming, ozone depletion, endangered species, how to recycle and how the environment balances itself. There are projects interspersed in these pages relative to the dialogue. The author does try to im upon the reader “to be aware of the materials you use” and encourages environmental awareness throughout the text. Among the many projects you can do include:

Make Your Own Whole World Granola
Make Your Own Tullgren Funnel
Make Your Own Wind-Powered Bubble Machine

I’ve been looking at this book for over a month and marveling at the amazing information packed inside. This book was printed on “100% recycled paper” by a member of the Green Initiative and a listing of the resources saved are listed in the front. The inside has no glossy pages and is actually quite dull looking in black and white. BUT, you’ll have to travel far and wide to find a more interesting and unique book that not only discusses critical environmental issues, but also pres many hands-on projects for its readers. In the back of the book is a glossary, an index and additional recommended book, periodical, environmental and web site resources for children. Can’t go wrong with this book!
