Description of Earth Science 8 Student Text (4th Edition) by BJU Press
Formerly Space and Earth Science, 3rd Ed., this new edition features a new cover, new title, and newly reworked and added content. Two scientists-one portraying a secular, the other a biblical-perspective, will help to guide you through the text. Moving from the ground up, students will learn the history of the earth; the soil, rocks, and fossils; oceans, seas, lakes, and rivers; the atmosphere; and space. Special boxes throughout the text provide different notes on items of biblical, earth science, maps/mapping, geographic locations, and information on the changing climate debate. Unfamiliar words are defined with their etymology; short biographies may also be highlighted in the sidebar. Section review questions and chapter review summaries with review questions are also included. 714 pages, glossary and index included. 4th Edition.
