Grade 6 Up-- Offered here are science experiments and nature projects on the five kingdoms of life, with a final chapter addressing current ecological concerns. Instructions are provided for building a simple microscope, which is required for many of the experiments and activities. Project instructions and accompanying illustrations are clearly executed and cautions (in bold type) abound for experiments that require possibly hazardous substances such as acetone and iodine. Suggestions for further reading appear at the end of each chapter. Libraries owning Joel Beller's Experimenting with Plants (Dial, 1989) and Steven Garber's Urban Naturalist (Wiley, 1987) may consider this title as an additional purchase. --Denia Lewis Hester, Dewey School, Evanston, IL
