I have had these wonderful science books for years and still recommend them to families who want to encourage exploration as well as learning scientific facts. One Small Square by Donald M. Silver is beautifully illustrated and takes one small square of an area that is being studied and looks at what plants and animals would traverse or live in that ecosystem. You can use these books to supplement your curriculum or use this as a spine for your studies. I have three of the books that you can see by this picture, but there are more in the series.
The Pond is the one that I chose to feature since most of us have access to a small body of water. But, if you don’t, you can still read and learn about this ecosystem.
Does your student like to find hidden pictures? This is a fun way to match the animal with the shadow and discover its name too!
Have a great week! ~Lisa~
