Flat Earth Ocean Tide Theory: Water Is diamagnetic, meaning it repels a magnetic field. The close sun is a positive electromagnetic energy repelling the water in the ocean, creating low tides and and the moon is a negative electromagnetic energy causing high tides. - Wrong - Water is only very weakly repelled by a magnetic field not attracted. If any of this were true we would experience huge tidal changes during Sunspot activity (magnetic storms)…

I use this with my first graders. Some were straining their necks to read the anchor chart with the close reading marks. This will enable them to have the resource close by. They include the marks I use in my classroom. Check out my Close Read packs:American Symbols and MonumentsRainforest AnimalsCheck out my blog for more info:Fantastic First Grade Froggies

All the crystals are nestled snug in a vug of Quartz crystals and breccia matrix. From the Grand Reef Mine in Graham County, Arizona, this specimen is a collector's dream and an Arizona mineral collector's must have! Measures 8 cm by 7 cm in size."
