When is a weed not a weed

How can a jackrabbit survive in the desert

Why is the climate cooler higher in the mountains

Now kids can learn the answers to these and other questions about ecology through easy activities that can be performed at home or in the classroom. In Ecology for Every Kid, kids will learn how animals adapt to their environments and how different species live peacefully with each other. With a raisin cookie, a pencil, and a toothpick, kids learn how a woodpecker obtains food. And by using some uncooked rice and a sock, they'll duplicate the remarkable surefootedness of a mountain goat

Kids will also explore the effects of modern society on the environment, such as the disposal of garbage and plastics and the mistreatment of the earth's water, and they'll learn what they can do to make a difference

Each of the activities in this book begins with a statement of purpose followed by a list of materials, step-by-step instructions, expected results, and a scientific explanation in terms that kids can understand. The book also contains many helpful diagrams and illustrations plus a glossary of bold-faced terms for kids to refer to whenever necessary. Parents will be glad to hear that each and every activity has been pretested and can be performed safely and inexpensively in the classroom or at home
