Award-winning author Shar Levine and Leslie Johnstone have cooked up a science success in the kitchen and made a splash in the bathroom, all by showing kids how to transform their homes into exciting science labs. Next step: the backyard, where budding ecologists can begin their study of nature. Whether they're examining slug slime (testing a garden slug's slime to see how sticky it is), finding and germinating fern spores, or getting down and dirty in the earth to see soil critters, youngsters will love this array of fun outdoor science activities. Brightly colored photographs and illustrations help kids carry out each experiment perfectly.

Baker & Taylor
Presents various outdoor projects to teach about animals, plants, and nature, including creating a bird bath, ladybug bed, and sundial.
