    Children are fascinated by animals and capitalizing on their interest and passion will help them to love learning (and who knows, maybe provide a career opportunity for them in the future!). Divided into two parts, this book takes children from understanding Zoology at its most basic definition through the foundational concepts of animal forms and functions, animal behavior and environment. Then, it forays into zoology (in real life) with a survey of career paths and experiences for zoologists. Intermingled within the text are full color illustrations and abundant hands-on activities. A sampling of activities includes playing a dolphin echolocation game, demonstrating a butterfly’s life cycle, communicating like a deep sea animal, molding “tiger teeth”, planning and drawing an animal’s exhibit and following recipes to create an edible animal cell and bat fruit salad. The over 20 activities usually use easy to find items. Includes bolded vocabulary words, a glossary, an index and resources to learn more. A perfect supplement to any science curriculum or unit study/summer study resource. 131 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    Yup, a butterfly garden! This kit includes a butterfly garden habitat (11" tall, 10" diameter) that pops up to stand on its own. You'll also get an Online Redemption Voucherfor five Painted Lady caterpillars, butterfly feeding kit, instructions for care, plus interesting butterfly facts. Please note that there is an additional shipping and handling fee for the caterpillars and food. Watch the caterpillar morph into chrysalises, then beautiful Painted Lady butterflies to keep in your butterfly habitat. Enough nutrient is included in the container for the caterpillars as they mature into butterflies, and after that you feed them with the aid of your butterfly feeding kit. When they're full grown, set them free! The sides of the butterfly garden habitat are made out of a see-through and breathable mesh for easy viewing. There is also a hook-and-loop fastener strap on top which will allow you to hang it from the ceiling or in front of a window (it also allows you to fold the habitat flat when not in use. Please note that butterfly larvae do not ship to Canada or HI and they will only be shipped during mild weather. - Stephanie

    Even young players can start identifying animal tracks with this fun game! Animal Tracks! includes 40 animal track cards and 40 animal cards. The track cards include a black print of the animal track, the animal's name, and the typical size of the track. Animal cards feature a full-color photo of the animal and its name. Directions for three games are printed inside the box lid (Yay! No papers to lose!); Concentration, Bingo, or "Guess the Tracks." If you're studying animals and/or tracking in your science curriculum, these would make nice thick flashcards as well. Any way you use them, players are sure to gain familiarity with the shape of the animal tracks and the animals that make them, while having some fun too! – Jess

    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

    Even if you live in an urban area, you can still learn all about animal tracks and make your own realistic casts with this kit from Young Scientist's Club. The kit includes plaster of Paris, a brush, sand, two bowls, an animal track game with 80 cards, a poster, stickers, two popsicle sticks, a measuring cup, watercolor paint and an instruction manual. Play the card game to match animals with their tracks (learning 40 animal tracks in the process!), and place matching animal and track stickers on the poster. Several groups of animal tracks are featured at the bottom of the poster – can you tell the "story" behind them? Then get ready to make your own set of animal track casts using the eight included molds and plaster! After you've perfected your casting technique, it's time to look for animal tracks in nature. When you find one, follow the instructions to capture the track using wet plaster and add your "wild find" to your new collection of animal tracks. The full-color instructions walk parent and child through the activities and directions, and provide a place to record answers and observations. This would be a fun kit to explore before taking a hiking, hunting or camping trip; you could even take the animal track matching game on the road with you for the whole family to enjoy! – Jess

      This kit is much like the Live Butterfly Garden (#003539) except it is more spacious. This butterfly habitat stands 18” tall and has a diameter of 15”. It is also made out of a see-through mesh, it “pops up” to stand on its own, and it can be folded flat using the hook-and-loop fastener straps that are attached to the top of the habitat (these can also be used to hang the butterfly pavilion).  This kit comes with a voucher for five Painted Lady caterpillars and food for them as well. Simply redeem your voucher online at InsectLore.com (additional shipping and handling fee is required when you redeem your voucher) and your caterpillars will be delivered to your front door. Detailed instructions, a pipette for butterfly feeding and Painted Lady butterfly Life Cycle Stages Figures are also included in the kit.  Please note that caterpillars can only be shipped during mild weather and within the continental US and Alaska. Caterpillars are not shipped to Canada or Hawaii.

    By the same publisher as Nature Log, here's one specific to birds. Log sheets ask for particular information, such as wing shape, color, beak shape, etc. This log contains more pages than the Nature Log, and allows bird watchers to keep a running record of birds observed (Life List), and a bird part identification page. It also contains Photo/Artwork pages on which your young naturalist can paste a picture, draw a bird, paste a photo, or glue feathers from observed specimens.

    Raising frogs from tadpoles sounds like a fun and educational experience, but if you don't have the time or desire to collect your own and make them a home, consider this kit. The kit was changed for 2015 and now includes a packet with tadpole food, nutri-sand and a postcard to request your tadpole and its new larger habitat. When you receive the packet from us, use the postcard to order the tadpole and its habitat from the supplier (no additional postage is necessary; please note that tadpoles may not be able to be shipped at certain times of the year, due to low temperatures. Cannot be shipped to Hawaii, Alaska, or Canada). The tadpoles are somewhat transparent so you can see into their bodies and even watch their heart beat. In 6-8 weeks the tadpole undergoes metamorphosis into an adult frog. The habitat and supplies provide the right balance of algae and other microorganisms to keep the frog healthy. Food is also included with a serving spoon to nourish all the way through metamorphosis. A Fun & Fact handbook gives detailed instructions, shares interesting facts about your new pet, and answers common questions. Once the frog has developed, you can send in for "stage two food" and a larger habitat if you wish. Frogs have an average life span of five years. ~ Rachel S.

    Watch ants dig underground tunnels with this unique ant habitat. This habitat is designed to be identical to an ant's real home, as the "cross-cut" design features an oversized tunneling chamber for easy observation. The habitat stands 8.5 inches high and its base is 11 inches x 5 inches, which makes tipping over virtually impossible. Thankfully, a locking lid also makes escape impossible for the ants! The habitat comes with "easy dig" sand, a sand rod, and instructions. A voucher is also included for Harvester ants to fill the habitat. The ants are free, but you will need to pay $4.00 shipping for 25 ants within the U.S. or $5.00 shipping for Canada. Please note that ants can not be shipped to Oregon or Hawaii. The double-sided viewing area and the dome shaped design make this habitat practical and fun.

    No ordinary, boring deck of cards, this beautifully illustrated card set features 54 beautiful butterfly species. While opposite corners of each card feature the card number and suit, the middle of each card displays a full-color, lifelike portrait of a butterfly along with its common name. Each card in the deck (including jokers) features a different butterfly, so no two cards are alike. Deck is standard size, and cards are durable and coated. Design your own butterfly games for that insect unit, use as a take-off point in identifying and learning more about these species, or just use as a colorful substitute to your normal playing cards. - Jess

      This adorable set is a great way for your children to be introduced to human anatomy. The 28 page, oversized book (7.5x14.2”) takes your child on a journey through each part of the human body – Bony Frame, muscles (On the Move), respiratory system (Deep Breath), Blood Flow, Beating Heart, digestive system (Eating), Liver & Kidneys, Brain, Nervous System, Seeing & Hearing, and Skin & Hair. Cute, animated illustrations have a lot of kid-appeal, as they learn about their body. A glossary provides a list of words with definitions that may be new to young students.

      The larger, thick puzzle pieces (28) assemble to make a 38-inch floor puzzle of the human body. Even better, the unique way the pieces fit together allow you to move the limbs. Children can learn to identify the parts on their puzzle, as they read their way through the book. Pieces can be stored in the box attached to the back of the book. ~ Donna

    Setting up camp on your dining table is as easy as unfolding the game board – it's the questions on the path to the camp that may challenge you. With simple game play that focuses more on outdoor education rather than on competition, your family will be able to jump right into this board game. Players start at the camp and must answer multiple choice questions as they wander through the wilderness path on the board. The question cards each contain four questions at different difficulty levels, with players selecting their level at the beginning of the game. Questions test a wide range of animal and nature knowledge for the entire family, and the upper level questions can definitely be a challenge. When we played, one time around the board made for a very quick game with two players, so you might want to go around a couple of times. For up to 8 players. - Zach
