This educational title explores the various habitats and behavior of animals that live together in the ocean. From a bloom of jellyfish to a waddle of penguins, large photos take children on a journey around the globe to learn about animal groups. Each page spread has a simple sentence followed by facts about the animals. A quick quiz provides additional reading and learning fun! SandCastle is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
Both classroom teachers and vacationing parents will find this little book to be a charmer. Counting from one to twelve, Sue picks up shells--periwinkle, kittens paw, scallop--and carefully adds them to her bucket as a gift for Grandma. She and her friend identify the shells, and when they discover one that still has the mollusk living inside they put it back in the water--learning that shells are actually the abandoned homes of sea animals--but sometimes the animal is still home! The paperback edition contains a tear-out shell identification card to enhance the hands-on lesson in simple wonders from nature.
Teachers and parents, take note: this book is already a classic. Two geniuses--author and illustrator--came into perfect alignment to create this book. The author has kids thinking it is entertainment while adults think it is a great lesson about the ocean. The genius of the illustrator is obvious. With painstaking detail each illustration is created entirely of polymer clay, then photographed, creating a 3-D impression of tremendous vitality. Kids will sing, clap, and count their way among pufferfish that puff, gruntfishthat grunt, and seahorses that flutter, and begin to appreciate life in the ocean. And the art will inspire many a project. Plus there are several pages of extension ideas for curriculum and art projects as well as resources on the web and elsewhere.
Introduces whales, sharks, sea stars, and other animals of the sea, while teaching the concept of counting to ten.
Readers will learn about unique creatures of the deep while completing engaging practice problems to familiarize themselves with functional equations, equivalent equations, inequalities, and algebraic expression. Featuring eye-catching images of marine animals, engaging practice problems, easy-to-read text, STEM themes, clear mathematical charts and diagrams, and an accessible glossary and index, this title will engage students and simplify advanced mathematical concepts!
Penelope Parker lives with penguins! Short ones, tall ones; young and old--the penguins are from all over the Southern Hemisphere including some that live near the equator! Do the penguin antics prove too much for her to handle? Children count and then compare and contrast ten different penguin species as they learn geography.
Practice measurement while learning about marine ecology and life in the ocean layers! There are so many animals living in the vast oceans of our planet! Not only does this title teach readers how to measure marine life by grams, feet, inches, and other similar units of measurement, but it teaches them how to measure ocean water using Celsius and Fahrenheit. Using familiar and unfamiliar units of measurement in an unfamiliar territory challenges readers to expand their measurement and STEM skills. Exciting images, simple practice problems, easy-to-read text, clear mathematical charts and diagrams, and an accessible glossary all help children advance their mathematical skills.
