Renowned storyteller Kendall Haven brings his expertise to the authorship of this fourth book in the 4-book series, Wonders of Nature: Natural Phenomena in Science and Myth. Intended for teachers to use with students in the upper elementary and middle school grades, it focuses on natural phenomena of the earth (volcanoes, earthquakes, etc.) through the eyes of ancient myth, and then looks at the actual modern day science that explains each myth, using an interdisciplinary style of teaching. Using knowledge gained as a former research scientist, Haven integrates science curricular with the study of myth. Students are encouraged not only to appreciate the magic in myth and science, but to understand the commonality of all human experience with nature over all time. The book contains myths from several different cultures, and accompanying scientific explanations. Bibliographies, recommended Web sites, student projects, and discussion and activity ideas are also included, while illustrations and diagrams enhance student interest. The book is to be used by teachers and librarians with students, and by students in libraries and classrooms. Grades 4-8.
