Life Science

The World of Vertebrates

The World of Vertebrates Homeschool Science Book
The World of Vertebrates

By Dinah Zike, M. Ed. and Susan Simpson

"The world of animals comes alive through reading, writing, labs, and research. Students create their own 3D Graphic Organizers for fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. The characteristics, environments, systems, and habits of these animals are discovered in The Lots of Science Library Books and then reinforced while completing the Graphic Organizers."

"Hand-on labs using everyday items solidify the concepts learned. Research applies those concepts to various vertebrates of your student’s choice. The finished product is a set of Desktop Projects suitable for presentation to a small group, which will become a colorful keepsake. The World of Vertebrates begins with the natural interest we all have in animals and broadens it to a biological study."

Discovering the Human Body and Senses

By Dinah Zike, M. Ed. and Susan Simpson

"The magnificent workings of the human body are introduced by the systems where they function. For example, while studying the respiratory system students learn the parts of the system, how each work individually and with other parts, and the importance of these parts in the entire body."

"Labs and other activities show students how these system parts complete their jobs in the body. 3D Graphic Organizers made in each lesson visually present information for all aged students. Desk Top Projects are created by students for each system of the body. While the content covered in this study is extensive, as in all Great Science Adventures books, it is appropriate for grades K-8."
