Structures are part of many primary curriculum guidelines. They usually mean human-made structures such as bridges. Structures are made up of parts arranged in a way that serve a certain purpose. This book looks at natural structures such as plants, animal bodies, mountains, caves, rock formations, and icebergs, the materials from which they are made, and their colors, shapes, and textures. It shows structures made by animals, such as beehives and bird nests. The book also compares natural structures to human-made structures, such as natural bridges and human-made bridges, a ladybug and cars shaped like beetles, a bird and an airplane, and giraffes and construction cranes. This wonderful book with amazing photos will encourage young readers to notice colors and shapes in nature and how they relate to the purpose of structures.
Mathematicians say that symmetry has to be identical parts, but nature is never truly identical. However, it is far more interesting than geometric shapes! Reading this book, children will become aware of the balance of things in nature. They will delight at amazing photographs of butterflies, beetles, leaves and flowers, fruit, sea creatures, and children. This book will show how a person with arms outstretched has fivefold symmetry like a sea star, and if you drew a circle around his or her body in that position, the navel would be at its center.
