  • Habitats

    By Anna Claybourne
    Authors:
    Anna Claybourne
    Habitats are brilliant things to study scientifically. Within habitats, plants humans and other animals have learned to adapt to the variety of biomes on Earth. In Habitats you'll delve into the science behind these marvels of the natural world by conducting ten investigations or experiments using the ATOM method - Ask, Test, Observe & Measure - to ensure you're working just like a professional scientist. Work out why ecosystems are important and what happens if too much or too little of something occurs in the natural world. Discover the ways some animals are adapted to cold habitats, the important role trees play and all about climate change! 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.
