Don’t be fooled by the title. Mountains of Jokes about Rocks, Minerals, and Soil is more than just a book of jokes. It also contains basic information about all kinds of basic earth science topics--rocks, minerals, the rocky cycle, soil, layers of Earth, crystals, volcanoes, erosion, caves and more.
And that’s not all. The backmatter includes a 6-page section about how to write jokes using a wide range of language devices, including alliteration, homographs and homophones, and rhyme. There’s no better way to get students to engaging in authentic word play.
