From Stone Age hunters who carved spearheads from rock, to modern-day construction workers building skyscrapers and sidewalks, people have been using rock for millions of years. Today, we build with rock, we use it to make statues, we extract metals and precious gemstones from rock, and we even use it to make pencils! Filled with information perfectly suited to the abilities and interests of an early elementary audience, this colorful, fact-filled volume gives readers a chance not only to learn, but also to develop their powers of observation and critical thinking. From stunning photographs to high-interest text, this book makes learning about the ways in which people use rock a lively, engaging experience.

How Do People Use Rocks?

The wide-format books in the Rock-ology series discuss facts related to geology. A typical double-page spread introduces a new topic in several short, large-print sentences supplemented by an info-circle carrying more information in smaller type. Separated on the page into individual sentences, the main text seems a bit disjointed even when the various parts are logically connected. The greater part of each spread is devoted to one or more captioned illustrations: photos, digital diagrams, and digital-collage pictures incorporating photographic elements. Though somewhat varied in quality, the colorful pictures are often effective. Each book includes a simple activity suitable for home or classroom use. How Do People Use Rocks? looks at the obvious (Stone Age weapons, building materials, statues) and the not-so-obvious (paint pigments, aluminum cans, learning through fossils). Recommended as supplementary resources for larger collections.
