Pond by Donald M. Silver, Patricia J. Wynne


Pond by Donald M. Silver, Patricia J. Wynne

Fish and fungi, plants and protists, mammals and monera all seem to get along swimmingly in and around the peaceful-looking pond environment. But a closer look at a small square reveals an ever-changing world...home to a larger variety of creatures and goings-on than you'd ever imagine, even in just a drop of its water! This beautifully illustrated you are there science book - part of the critically acclaimed One Small Square series - is brimming over with fun-to-do experiments and activities for children ages 7 and up. It includes a pond field guide, a glossary-index, and a resource list.
