Give emerging readers a fresh, exciting look at the seasons with Signs of the Seasons! Using familiar seasonal signs in ways that create informative and engaging portraits of the calendar year, each title turns students into nature detectives as they investigate how life changes during the course of a year. Children will observe a wide range of signs that indicate seasonal change, including variations in the length of days, plant and animal life, weather and temperature, and even the angle of the sun’s path as it crosses the sky.
Each title is expertly crafted to meet early elementary and science curriculum standards. Features such as age-appropriate activities and experiments, record-keeping projects, critical-thinking questions, and easy-to-understand fact boxes will keep the pages turning and the pace lively and interactive. These features introduce readers to two fundamental components of scientific inquiry—making observations, and drawing inferences from those observations. And best of all, the activities are fun!
