Here's a great resource text for teachers and adult leaders of any school/youth group concerned with nature or the environment. A title in Ranger Rick's "NatureScope" series, this hardcover book is crammed with creative ways to teach an understanding and respect for the natural world. It includes reproducible "copycat pages" of games, puzzles and pictures to color, essays and case studies from leading scientists for group discussion, expanded glossaries and bibliographies, suggested indoor/outdoor activities complete with curriculum tie-ins, materials lists and step-by-step instructions. Topics range from "What Makes the Weather?" to an examination of the many ways the weather influences our lives. Each chapter contains activities for a wide range of students: Primary (Grades K-2), Intermediate (Grades 3-5) and Advanced (Grades 6-8). There's even a chapter devoted to arts and crafts projects that relate to weather themes. Maybe you can't do anything about the weather, but this book will help kids do a lot with it!
