Nomad Press’s Explore Spring!

Explore Spring! by Maxine Anderson

Focusing on the year’s first season, Explore Spring! invites readers 6-9 to become scientists in the field, conducting experiments, making observations, and creating projects that help them understand why we have spring and what happens during Earth’s most dynamic season. Projects range from tracking spring peepers to raising tadpoles, gauging wind direction through bubbles and parachutes to starting plants under a variety of conditions and experimenting with how plants disperse their seeds. Combining hands-on learning with fun facts, trivia, jokes and riddles, and terrific illustrations by cartoonist Alexis Frederick-Frost, Explore Spring! offers younger readers an opportunity to mix real science with real fun..
