"Planet Earth, Second Edition" is a full-color text written in a conversational style. It will methodically build your students' understanding of Earth from the initial overview of Earth to the concluding discussion of the exploitation of natural resources. The topic of plate tectonics is introduced early in the text, allowing students to establish an early understanding of the theory, and draw upon that understanding to better comprehend later topics. The text also includes an entire chapter devoted to soils - one of the most distinctive materials on Earth's surface. The Student Study Guide (packaged with the text) is designed to help students better understand the material they read in the textbook and hear in class, as well as aid in their preparation for exams. The study guide includes suggestions for academic success, various self-testing questions, and the same glossary of terms as found in the textbook.
