Nature Detective Books

Diane Swanson

Pacific Edge Publishing

Level: Grades 3-4

 

The Nature Detective Series is a set of five books and five activity guides, developed specifically to address learning standards in the BC science curriculum.

 

Written by award winning BC author, Diane Swanson, the Nature Detectives Series tells the stories of groups of adventurous nature detectives as they discover the life in five different ecosystems; westcoast rainforest, seashore, wetland, grassland and river. These enjoyable books provide primary teachers with a language-based resource from which science and language arts can be extended across the curriculum.

 

Each book introduces children to one of five fascinating  Pacific-Northwest. It shows how plants and animals interact and adapt themselves to the forest. It shows how living things depend on non-living things, such as water, light and soil. The book also presents examples of fossil forest life, First Nations' uses of forests and the ways people harm-and help-the forest. By the end of each book, children have a new appreciation for each ecosystem.
