    Earth Science

    My 12yo is doing MP nature studies with his siblings but he's very interested in earth science and physics concepts. I wanted to provide him with some free reading for these. I think I still have the Tiner physics book but that series doesn't have an earth science option. Can anyone recommend something similar to the Tiner series in reading level?

      It's a history of navigation and exploration rather than that of earth science.

        jen1134,

        Take a look at this supememtal science reading list put together here by Mr. John Mays with Novare/CAP:

        https://classicalacademicpress.com/b...-reading-lists

        There is a section of supplemental books to go along with the Earth Science text that may be worth a look for you. I highly recommend most of the books he has listed for the Physical Science and Introductory Physics section too since your 12yo is interested in Physics topics too.

            Thanks, Beorn! I think many of the titles are beyond him, but I think there are some that will be a great fit. One of them also reminded me of the science series from Bethlehem Books (Archimedes and the Door to Science, etc).

            howiecram I can only find activity books by that name/publisher...are those the ones you meant?

              Yes, I was thinking they were "books" but I guess it's activities and reading all in one. MODG uses them for 9th grade Earth science. They use it though for composition and research skills. The books say they are for grades 5-9.

                I use Bookshark reading lists as a springboard for good Science reading (and just pleasure reading in general). If he is 12, maybe Level E or F would be a good fit. Go to the Bookshark site; Level E; Science (in the drop down box) and look and see if they have some good titles for you. We used their book lists as “fun” reading from the library last year. There are some true gems in there. Lots of facts, but in an easily digestible format.
