Nature School

This book is an introduction to the different biomes such as wetlands, temperate, deserts, seashore and grasslands.

For every biome many things are shown and explained such as what the ecosystem is like, climate and weather, plants, animals, and more. Each biome also ends with some fun activities you and your child can do to really ingrain the learning and make it fun at the same time.

The activities often require you to collect some simple supplies but you may not have all of them in your house already so I recommend planning ahead.

The book has colourful illustrations to show what the biome and it’s inhabitants look like. Here are some things you’ll learn about: sand dunes, coastal landforms, desert plants, temperate invertebrates, life cycle of an oak tree, wetland water, marine mammals, grassland predators and more.
