Vet Academy (Academy Series)
Packed full of fun, educational activities,Vet Academylets children explore life as a veterinarian, from the rigorous training involved in learning about different kinds of animals to the importance of food, exercise and conservation.
The book is broken up into sections -- Pet Vet, Zoo Vet, and Farm Vet -- and each section includes arts and crafts, puzzles and quizzes, plus tasks and missions. Everything from learning about dog body language to a day in the life of a zoo elephant (and her vet), to farm vet hygiene - it's all in here. Plus, there's also a pull-out poster, game, cards and sticker sheets to add to the interactive fun.
A fabulous introduction to STEM careers! Taking a learn-and-then-do approach, each book balances career instruction with activities/tasks while also introducing sub-specialties in each career. Students will learn what the career demands in tasks and personal skills and will be given opportunities to complete activities in and outside the book. Place the provided stickers on pages when you've completed tasks and get a "certification" when you've learned about each subcategory (the Scientist Academy, for example, covers lab, investigative, earth, and life science careers, etc.). Then, as part of "graduating" from the book, students take a career oath to follow as they pursue this career. Each book comes with stickers, a poster, a press-out model, and a game to put together. A superb tool to begin career exploration. ~ Ruth
