Product Description:

Children are fascinated by animals and capitalizing on their interest and passion will help them to love learning (and who knows, maybe provide a career opportunity for them in the future!). Divided into two parts, this book takes children from understanding Zoology at its most basic definition through the foundational concepts of animal forms and functions, animal behavior and environment. Then, it forays into zoology (in real life) with a survey of career paths and experiences for zoologists. Intermingled within the text are full color illustrations and abundant hands-on activities. A sampling of activities includes playing a dolphin echolocation game, demonstrating a butterfly's life cycle, communicating like a deep sea animal, molding "tiger teeth, planning and drawing an animal's exhibit and following recipes to create an edible animal cell and bat fruit salad. The over 20 activities usually use easy to find items. Includes bolded vocabulary words, a glossary, an index and resources to learn more. A perfect supplement to any science curriculum or unit study/summer study resource. 131 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

Publisher Description:

An interactive introduction to working with animals Zoology for Kids invites the next generation of zoologists to discover the animal kingdom through clear, entertaining information and anecdotes, lush color photos, hands-on activities, and peer-reviewed research. Young minds are introduced to zoology as a science by discussing animals' forms, functions, and behaviors as well as the history behind zoos and aquariums. Related activities include baking edible animal cells, playing a dolphin-echolocation game, and practicing designing an exhibit. Young readers can peek into the world of zookeepers and aquarists, veterinarians, wildlife researchers, and conservationists as they "train" their friends, mold a tiger's jawbone, and perform field research in their own backyard. This engaging resource provides readers with new knowledge, a healthy respect for the animal kingdom, and the idea that they can pursue animal-related careers and make a difference to preserve and protect the natural world.
