Christine Royce has created an engaging, well-structured lesson based on two trade books. Help your students discover more than the first things they observe. Follow the question: Is there more here that I am seeing? This lesson will take students under the city streets and under the sea to discover what changes the earth's surface over time. A great way to compare human-made changes and natural changes.
