Galileo Space Science Grades 7-8 Extension

$6.99
Front Cover and Inside Spread of Galileo By Rebecca B. Marcus
Details

Born in 1564 in Italy, Galileo Galilei spent his life asking “Why?” It was not enough for him to be told a fact—he had to investigate it and prove it for himself. Would Galileo become a great musician? An inventor? A mathematician? A teacher? An author? Actually, he became all of these! More than anything else, he was a dedicated scientist and is now known as the father of modern experimental science. Even though some individuals were slow to accept Galileo and his research, he never gave up “finding the truth and proclaiming it.”
