The Sassafras Science Adventures Volume 5: Geology

The summer-long, science-filled, adventure-packed journey rolls on with a look at rocks, volcanoes, and more!

In The Sassafras Science Adventures Volume Five: Geology, the zip-lining science adventure rolls on for Blaine and Tracey Sassafras – and we want to bring you all along for the ride!

Join the Sassafras Twins as they travel to bizarre locales to learn about rocks.

Together, you will learn about rocks, fossils, maps, and more as the twins zip around the globe. In the book, you will visit locations like:

  • The countryside of Norway to learn about igneous rock and fjords,
  • The continent of Antarctica to learn about metamorphic rock and glaciers,
  • And a deep, dark cavern in Australia to learn about stalagmites and stalactites!

The twins will meet a variety of local experts who help them along the way to learn about the different geological wonders found on the Earth.

We want you to enjoy learning about geology, too!

And, we know that through monster chasing, cross-continental hiking, and mining expedition this living book will teach your students about rocks, volcanoes, and more in a way that they’ll never forget!

We know this because thousands of readers have already told us so. Here is what one of our Sassy-Sci peeps had to say about the fifth leg of our adventure:
