Publisher Description:

With a wide range of habitats, plants, and animals, the Pacific Northwest is a wonderful region for getting outside and discovering nature. There is so much to see and appreciate--even in your backyard or at a nearby park. Teach your children to love and protect the great outdoors.

This workbook by naturalist Dr. Robert Niese features more than 20 simple, fun introductions to astronomy, birds, geology, and more. Plus, over a dozen activities help kids to make hypotheses, experiment, and observe. The 19 hands-on science projects--such as raising native caterpillars, making mushroom spore prints, and attracting moths with an ultraviolet light--put students in control of their own learning!

You never know what your children will uncover in their outdoor classroom. Every day is a little treasure hunt. If they keep good records and share what they find, their observations can even help scientists learn more about nature in the states of Oregon and Washington. So get the Backyard Science & Discovery Workbook: Pacific Northwest, and get started on a lifetime of discovery.
