Items in this section tend to be instructional frameworks, or unit studies with a "core" teaching resource supplemented with additional text and/or activity resources.
For the kids that would rather read about animals and bugs than about the adventures of Dick and Jane, this series of readers presents exciting science topics, exploring these though age-appropriate text and awesome photos. Each 32-page reader features several lines or a short paragraph of text on each page, accompanied by sharp, full-color photos of the subject that you just want to linger over. Important words are in bold and more complex words (like "hibernate") may also include pronunciation to aid early readers. While the text is short, each page packs in a few facts that are sure to keep science-lovers interested. A glossary and a follow-up activity are also included. - Jess
