    This large poster classifies insects into three main categories: Prominent Wings, Wingless, and Modified Wings. The purpose of the chart is to introduce students to the various types of insects, learn the insect orders, and identify the characteristics that determine an insect's classification. For each of the three categories, colorful illustrations of several insects are displayed, listing their order with info that describes them and points out why they are classified the way they are. The bottom of the chart describes basic insect anatomy and defines some terms found on the poster. This provides a great way for students to visualize the organization of insect orders and learn how to classify insects themselves. 24" x 36". ~ Rachel

    This Teacher Guide creates a zoology unit study for elementary students using The World of Animals, Wonders of God's World Dinosaur Activity Book, The Complete Aquarium Adventure, and The Complete Zoo Adventure. The 180 daily lessons are detailed in the suggested schedule chart, along with space to record due dates for assignments and grades. Also included in the planner are student worksheets for The World of Animals, quizzes and tests, and the answer key. The worksheets are simply answering questions concerning the assigned reading, and permission is given for copying to small groups of ten or less and homeschool families. Students will learn about simple animals, worms/snails/starfish, insects, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals. Five bonus activities are included in the planner for a hands-on experience in each subject area. These activities are optional, but even choosing just one in each section will enhance the learning experience. ~ Donna

    If you and your kids want to learn about birds, and I mean really learn about birds (more than the information provided by little books or field guides), then this is the book for you! Packed with full-color illustrations and photographs and detailed, yet easy-to-read information, bird lovers of all ages will learn something new. The book begins with an up-close-and-personal look at the bird. Learn the finer structures within feathers, types of feathers, bird anatomy and structure including bones and internal organs, types of bills, bird senses, and much more. The second chapter talks about the various places birds call home and which types prefer which environments and habitats. Bird communication, communities, nest preferences, eggs and food are all discussed. The third chapter is in a field guide layout – introducing thirty types of birds with an introduction, size comparison, habitat, bird call, and range across the U.S.A. given. The section ends with a compact chart of all the birds discussed and the essential information about each one. Then students will learn about birds that are endangered and bird migration. The fifth chapter entails how you can interact with birds and make your yard a bird haven. There are some ideas for building projects such as nesting boxes and arbors, and ideas for keeping a calendar of the birds you see and when you see them to learn their schedules. The sixth and final chapter shows the gold-medal winning birds in lots of different events such as fastest runners, highest fliers, deepest divers, best dressed and more with short explanations of which bird species came in first. A glossary, resource list, index, and a short bird-watching quiz are all included in the appendix. So read up and head outside to put your new knowledge to the test! ~ Megan

    A favorite topic at our house, with at least two resident horse-lovers, and one difficult Arabian (Megan's pride and joy). Beginning in the 1700's with the Godolphin Arabian, this course studies breeds and their histories, using Marguerite Henry books and the classics Black Stallion and Black Beauty (among others). Well-written lesson plans involve the student in a chronological study of horses and breeds, including horse anatomy, identification, sketching horses, charting blood lines, and Bible memory verses regarding the horse. This would be a one-year study if you complete two lessons per week. Resources below include some excellent literature and reference books.

    Bird feeders are a wonderful way to bring avian life to your windowsill. However, hummingbirds seem to be some of the pickier birds when it comes to feeding time. If you want these little busy-bodies to stick around, this hummingbird feeder is a good way to do so. Inside are all the pieces to put together a colorful feeder and a chart showing which hummingbirds are likely to dine in your area. When Spring rolls around, stick the feeder on a window with the attached suction cups, make sure it’s perfectly level, and fill any small, plastic bottle (the traditional “standard size” water bottle works best) with the included nectar recipe of sugar and water. Place the bottle upside down in the feeder, and let the nectar flow up to the three flower-shaped feeding spots. Sit back, relax, and watch the hummingbirds (and butterflies) feast! Simply swap out the sugar-water and rinse out the base every few days to keep the birds coming back for more.

    Ever wonder what owls eat? Dissect an owl pellet and find out! Owls regurgitate the indigestible remains of their meals, which make their diet easy to investigate. This pouch contains one sanitary owl pellet and a bone chart. Use a tweezers or other small tool (not included) to dissect the pellet and then identify the remains using the chart. However, if you're grossed out by the "real thing," you may want to check out the Skeleton Pellets, which are synthetic versions of owl pellets with one (non-surprise) animal skeleton inside. - Jess

    This book is not a science text, but it will help you with whatever science textbook you are using. It's a comprehensive science reference guide covering physics, chemistry and biology. Each area of focus features color-coded subtopics with significant detail. The chemistry section contains subtopics for general, physical, inorganic, organic, and environmental chemistry. The biology section includes ecology, botany, zoology, human biology, genetics and general biology. The physics section is divided into mechanics, heat, waves, electricity and magnetism, nuclear physics, and general physics.

    We've come to expect compelling color pictures, graphics and charts from Usborne, and this book does not disappoint. Every page has excellent visuals and concise explanations of scientific laws and principles. For example, the biology section includes a subtopic covering the nervous system. The book shows and describes the parts of the neuron including the cell body, the dendrites and the axon. The graphics do an excellent job of showing the interaction between nerve cells and how the chemical neurotransmitters work at the synapse between the cells. You learn the difference between association (or relay) neurons and motor (or instruction) neurons.

    With over 350 pages, a glossary, and complete index, this book makes finding information quick and easy. Use the book to review material already studied, or as additional explanation or clarification of current lessons. - Jerry
