Description
Themes: Hi-Lo, headlines, nonfiction, disasters, world events. As society moves forward technologically and scientifically, pollution wrecks the natural environment. Learn here about the tragic effects of industrial accidents such as the Great Smog of London, Love Canal, the Hanford and Fukushima nuclear plants, the Exxon Valdez, Chernobyl, and Bhopal. This series of nonfiction readers will grab a student's interest from the very first page! Designed with struggling readers in mind, these riveting 92-page books offer short chapters on significant disasters. Each chapter is its own mini-book, which includes a timeline, key terms, and interesting facts. Fascinating black and white photographs keep the pages turning. A bibliography encourages further topical reading.
