Synopsis

Discovering Deserts by National Wildlife Federation

Ranger Rick's NatureScope is a creative, activities-centered education series dedicated to inspiring in children an understanding and appreciation of the natural world, while developing the skills they will need to make responsible decisions about the environment. Teachers, parents, scout leaders, camp counselors, and anyone else committed to sharing nature with kids will want to collect all the volumes of these award-winning nature guides, filled with kid-pleasing indoor and outdoor activities.Each book includes: reproducible Copycat Pages, with games, puzzles, pictures to colour, and more; ready-to-use activities, including arts and crafts, creative writing, science experiments, songs, games, and curriculum tie-ins, with complete materials lists and step-by-step instructions; essays and case studies from leading scientists for group discussion; and expanded glossaries and bibliographies.Make a giant cactus, and other friendly ways to learn about the desert. The beauty of deserts is known to many kids only through movies and TV. But the awesome look of deserts is just part of their story. Deserts are vast ecosystems representing triumphs of animal and plant survival: hummingbirds and elf owls, scarab beetles and barbary sheep, the piglike javalina, and the many cactuses that preserve themselves by acting as fine-tuned moisture-catching systems. This learning sourcebook gives kids everywhere an activities-oriented, scientific approach to studying the earth's deserts. It also takes them on a discovery sidetrip into the intriguing human communities that have survived desert environments for centuries.
