Students who enter Kathy Blakemore’s middle school classroom on the first day of school are immediately immersed in science. Science here is something students do, not something they learn about from dry sources that drain the wonder from the science all around them. On any day, visitors would see students saving local wildlife, observing the water from the nearby lake, or organizing an experiment to determine just how light affects phytoplankton. When students leave her class, they have learned several of the important dispositions that scientists all over the world recognize as hallmarks of their profession. They learn the value of wonder, the importance of organized inquiry, and the significance of disseminating the hard work of science they have done. That is why this eBook is such an accomplishment. In the electronic pages of Incredible Invertebrates, the seventh-grade authors have synthesized a mountain of sources into a fun-to-read volume about an amazing world that most people just don’t see even though it is all around them. Filled with photographs and diagrams, the book immerses the reader in the depths of the sea where sponges and sea anemones live to the space above your garden where butterflies and beetles fly. Throughout the book, the authors guide readers through the difficult vocabulary of the invertebrate world with bolded words and a glossary of terms for easy reference in each section.
