What is the Animal Kingdom? (Science of Living Things)
Few books explain the scientific classification of animals as well as What is the Animal Kingdom? All creatures, including insects, mammals, and fish, are classified and described from simple animals like sponges to the larger brained mammals such as humans. Young readers will learn:
- all the basics of kingdoms and species that form an important foundation for the study of biology
- the threat to habitats by illegal hunting, human development, and pollution
- how readers can help prevent their destruction
The Mammals study from Memoria Press is divided into 30 lessons, but covers a variety of mammal topics - What is the Animal Kingdom, What is a Mammal, Monotremes, Marsupials, Insectivores, Chiropterans, Edentates, lagomorphs, Hyraxes and the Aardvark, Rodents, Ungulates, Elephants, Carnivores, Cetaceans, and Primates.
The Teacher Guide and Student Book are designed to accompany World of Animals, What is the Animal Kingdom, and What is a Mammal. In the Student Book, for each lesson, there is a reading assignment then exercises to be completed. Journal pages are found at the back of the student book for additional notes and facts they may have found. There are 2 to 3 pages per lesson. The Teacher Guide includes student pages with the answers filled in, review suggestions at the end of each lesson, quizzes, tests, and answer keys for both. ~ Donna
