Exploring the Elements

Age Level: 10–13  Grade Level: 9–12

There is a world of elements to explore! Soda cans are made from aluminum, but where did that metal come from? You are a carbon-based life form, but are there life forms based on other elements? Your body also processes elements; the air you breathe contains oxygen and nitrogen. This enterprising series breaks the elements out of the confines of the periodic table, and shows readers what they can really do. How do elements impact everyday life? Readers will find out how, and will never look at their world in the same way again. The elements explored in this set include aluminum, carbon, helium, and iron.
