Evolution and Classification

Anna Claybourne
Authors:
Anna Claybourne

Evolution and classification are brilliant things to study scientifically. Plants, humans and other animals have incredible adaptations that mean they can survive in their habitats on Earth. In Evolution and Classification you'll delve into the science behind these marvels of the natural world by conducting investigations and experiments using the ATOM method - Ask, Test, Observe and Measure - to ensure you're working just like a professional scientist. Find out why camouflage is important for survival and how humans and other animals decide whether something is food or not. Discover the ways some animals attract a mate to breed with and the important role genes play! At the end of the book, scientific guidelines explain why scientists do things a certain way and the things they look out for or try to avoid. Science Skills Sorted are six topic books for children aged 8+ studying KS2 science. The ATOM method is designed to help readers work scientifically as they are taught to in the classroom, and each of the investigations is accompanied by explanatory text to uncover facts about the topic. A range of experiments in each book means that while some may need a little more equipment than others, there are plenty experiments that are cheap and accessible, using objects easily found in the classroom or at home.

The Story of You

Anna Claybourne
Authors:
Anna Claybourne

Why do some people have blue eyes and others, green? Why are some people good at music, and others at sport? And why do some people love seafood, and others HATE olives? The Story of You has the answers!From genetics and evolution to our environment and our families, the book looks at all the factors that shape us into the people we are. It explains how physical characteristics and abilities are passed down through generations, and why some things are inherited and others not. It explores how evolution has shaped us as a species, and at how the world we live in has impacted on and shaped us. It also looks at intelligence, where it comes from, and how we learn. The brain and the mind are explored, as are concepts such as personality, how we build relationships with other people, and how and why we form memories. The science behind all this is complex, but Anna Claybourne's clear, simple text renders it both accessible and of real interest to children - this is an invaluable resource for helping them to understand both the world and their place within it.
