Summary "Our solar system is just one small part of our galaxy--and there are thousands of galaxies besides our own. In this accessible and straightforward text, readers are introduced to the marvels of galaxies. Formation, sizes, and shapes of galaxies are discussed, including the Milky Way. Galactic movement and how scientists study galaxies are also revealed. Color photos, fast facts, and Words to Know increase the reader's learning experience, while a final hands-on activity emphasizes what the reader has learned. The book supports the Common Core English Language Arts standards for reading informational texts, and also correlates directly with Next Generation Science Standards"-- Provided by publisher.
