Synopsis

Amazing Biome Projects You Can Build Yourself by Donna Latham

Conducting a circumnavigation of the globe, this fascinating guide presents an excellent learning environment on Earth's terrestrial and aquatic biomes. From wandering through forests and sizzling in deserts to shivering in the tundra and plunging beneath the seas to explore coral reefs, children can explore each unique climate zone as well as the native flora and fauna's skills for survival. Gnarly krumholz trees, bioluminescent sea creatures, carnivorous plants, and blubbery marine critters are only a few of the intriguing elements to be encountered within this engaging handbook. In each biome, those who use science in their jobs are highlighted, whether at the site of a disastrous oil spill or an archaeological mastodon dig. Projects and activities include making lightning, building an erupting volcano, testing air quality, and creating a tornado in a bottle. Guaranteed to inspire an interest in all corners of the earth, this engrossing compendium also encourages an appreciation of how vital biomes are to the earth's health.
