Synopsis

Explore Winter! 25 Great Ways to Learn About Winter by Maxine K. Anderson

Young readers become scientists in the field when this activity book sends them off to answer the question Why do we have winter? with experiments and projects that mix real science with real fun. Combining hands-on learning with trivia, jokes, riddles, and terrific illustrations, chapters start with the tools of science--the scientific method and how to keep a science journal--and then investigate the winter constellations, long nights and long shadows, animal tracking in snow, and food-gathering behavior in birds.

A Parents

-conscious book (printed on 50% post-consumer recycled paper) has enough facts and fun inside to keep budding scientists from getting cabin fever through an entire winter season. Kids VT Get ready to lean about the season! Mix real science with real fun. Bookbuds Explore Winter! and Explore Spring! are chock-a-block with facts and info-boxes on animal habitats, migration patterns, nesting habits, foraging, etc. Most [projects] looked simple, using stuff already cluttering your kitchen or family room, and could be done by a supervised five-year old or independent seven-to-nine year old. Take your kids hiking through the woods and look for signs of chewed acorns or nibbled branches. Deer! How cool. School Librarian's Workshop For those not living in such cold climates, Maxine Anderson offers Gr. 1-4 an opportunity to Explore Winter! Interspersed within each chapter is at least one silly riddle Just of Laughs and assorted quick facts.
