Description

Take a Wetlands Walk

"Packed with fun and interesting sidebars, color photographs, and artwork by other kids, this award-winning series is as useful in the classroom as it is fun to readers. Designed to educate, entertain, and help create environmental stewards for our planet, the format presents science in a way that helps teachers address both national and state science and literacy standards. Topics are presented in convenient spreads that enable readers to flip throughout the books, and they provide definitions, resources, poetry, and quotes by celebrated people. The entire series is recommended by the National Science Teachers Association.

 Children reconnect with nature while developing an understanding and appreciation of the wetlands with this guide. Readers will learn about various types of wetlands such as marshes, bogs, floodplain forests, and swamps; how wetlands are formed; their function as a food source; and how they serve as nurseries for animals. They will also become acquainted with the birds, frogs, turtles, hawks, insects, mollusks, and more, which inhabit the wetlands. With this book and their in-field experiences, the children will begin to understand the effects of humans on the wetlands' ecosystems and why the wetlands are becoming a focus of environmentalists and conservationists all over the world." - Goodreads.com
