Discover the science of the natural world – on your doorstep!
Woodlands cover all corners of the earth, including the freezing arctic tundra and the humid tropics. But, did you know, the woodlands in your neighbourhood can be an equally amazing environment. This book uncovers the science and wonders of life amongst the trees.
The Great Outdoors aims to get kids looking at nature on their doorstep. Instead of larger biomes, the series looks at places children are most likely to have access to, such as the local park, their back garden, or a beach. It encourages them to observe the wildlife and the ecosystems at work within these places, while taking in broader concepts. Each volume contains 6 or more activities, which vary from observation to crafts, suitable for ages 7+.
