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

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.
