A little bit about the collection:
Take your younger elementary students on an exploration of life science, earth science, and physical science with the Learning About Science Collection, Level 2. These eight books study what an ecosystem is, how food chains work, why animals hibernate, how plants grow, some of the ways we use plants, major body systems and key organs and tissues, the water cycle, types of clouds, the planets, constellations, forces, simple machines, the scientific method, famous scientists, and more. Students can personalize each book by coloring the illustrations and tracing the key words in the space provided. Incorporate some fun and handwriting practice into science. Review activity sheets with answer keys are included. There are 163 pages total in this collection.
Understanding Food Chains: What is an ecosystem, and how does the sun play an important part in what every living thing eats? Find the answers to these questions and much more in this unit about food chains. Students discover what a food chain is, how animals can be both predators and prey, and how every food chain starts with the sun as they learn about food chains of animals that live in the arctic, Australian woodlands, boreal forests, coniferous forests, deciduous forests, deserts, grasslands, marshes, mountains, oceans, ponds, rain forests, and the tundra. 21 pages total.
Why Do Animals Hibernate? Students learn about hibernation and other ways animals survive the winter months in this unit by looking at the life of a bat, bear, chipmunk, groundhog, hedgehog, frog, snake, turtle, squirrel, beaver, and raccoon.

Take a look at the circulatory system and the job of the heart, arteries, veins, capillaries, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Explore the respiratory system and learn about the nose, lungs, and air sacs. Move into the digestive system and learn about the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, villi, large intestine, and liver. Also covered are the urinary system (kidneys and bladder), nervous system (brain and nerve cells), muscular system (skeletal muscles, smooth muscles, and cardiac muscles), and skeletal system (bone cells). 19 pages total.
