AAAS Science NetLinks has put up an excellent K-2 lesson on food chains that uses Vulture View and Trout Are Made of Trees. It links with Project 2061 Benchmark 5 The Living Environment; and National Science Standard C, Life Science. The National Science Teachers Association website has a section called NSTA RECOMMENDS which points out good resources for science teaching. Here Come the Humpbacks was just added with a full review.
“There are many reasons this book stands above the rest, but for me it was because of its ease of incorporation into science units,” says reviewer/educator Stella Robbins, who used it in her 4th grade animal studies unit.
Publishers Weekly has a review of Touch a Butterfly: Wildlife Gardening With Kids here.
