Ranger Rick's Naturescope is a creative,activities-centered education series dedicated to inspiring in children an understanding and appreciation of the natural world,while developing the skills they need to make responsible decisions about the environment. Teachers,parents,scout leaders,camp counselors,and anyone else committed to sharing nature with kids will want to collect all the volumes of these award-winning nature guides,filled with kid-pleasing indoor and outdoor activities. Each book includes: reproducible "Copycat Pages," with games,puzzles,pictures to color,and more; ready-to-use activities,including arts and crafts,creative writing,science experiments,songs,games,and curriculum tie-ins. . . with complete materials lists and step-by-step instructions; essays and case studies from leading scientists for group discussion; expanded glossaries and bibliographies. Grow a craft forest of wild things! Wild & Crafty teaches children about the earth's wonderfully diverse wild animals—and how to recreate them as beautiful crafts using simple,inexpensive materials. Younger children can make the crafts with adult guidance,while older kids will be able to read the instructions themselves. Box turtle puppets,dancing daddy longlegs,woven fish,and afamily of prehistoric sea-reptiles are just some of the original patterns provided for making colorful critters that will brighten a bedroom or classroom. (All patterns are full size,so they don't need to be reproduced. ) There are zoetrope,puzzle,and mast patterns,too—plus recipes for home-grown crystals!
