Boy, Were We Wrong About... BLC1024


A perfect selection for Common Core or STEM collections
Boy, Were We Wrong About the Weather!  Ancient Sumerian warriors used to think that lightning and thunder were caused by an angry weather god —boy, were they wrong! Even today once common ideas about how our weather and climate work are changing as new discoveries are being made. Kathleen V. Kudlinski and  Sebastià Serra team up to debunk old—and sometimes silly—myths about weather and to celebrate the pioneers that made meteorology the science it is today.
Boy, Were We Wrong About the Human Body! Long, long ago, ancient Egyptians thought that all of our ideas and personalities came from our hearts—boy, were they wrong! Debunking old (and sometimes silly) myths about the human body, this new addition to the Boy, Were We Wrong series shows how we discovered modern biology and medicine. From healing by applying leeches, to the ancient practice of acupuncture, to the discovery and study of DNA, this is the story of what we know about our bodies and how we still have lots to learn.
Boy, Were We Wrong About the Solar System! Some people used to think that Earth was smack-dab in the middle of the universe, with all the stars and planets held in the sky by giant glass balls. Boy, were they wrong! In this follow-up to the award-winning Boy, Were We Wrong About Dinosaurs!, Kathleen Kudlinski and John Rocco look at the mistakes, mishaps, and creativity that are part of scientific discovery. From the first humans wondering about the night sky to the demotion of Pluto to dwarf planet status, this book is an entertaining and informative look at how scientific theories change over time.
Boy, Were We Wrong About Dinosaurs! The ancient Chinese thought they were magical dragons. Scientists thought they could only float on water since they were so big. Boy, were they wrong! Even today, notions about dinosaurs are being revised as new discoveries are made. This lively book offers fascinating insight into how certain theories were formulated, and then how those theories were proved or disproved.
