Backyard Science & Discovery Workbook Southwest
With six states and a wide range of habitats, plants, and animals, the Southwest 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 botanist George Oxford Miller 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 Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, western Oklahoma, western Texas, and southern Utah. So get the Backyard Science & Discovery Workbook: Southwest, and get started on a lifetime of discovery.

Colorful photos, hands-on projects, engaging text, and varied activity pages will appeal to different learning styles. Workbook activity pages include nature journaling, crosswords, quick quizzes and more. Perfect for self discovery or parent guided learning for youngers. Recommended reading list, glossary and answers are included.
