9780773750395: Looking at Plants (David Suzuki's Looking at)

Did you know... wasps were the first to make paper from little bits of trees? some flowers can weigh up to thirty pounds? the strangler fig tree means deadly business? some vines will climb 60m (200 ft.) and are so strong they can hold up grown trees that have died? Looking at Plants, a beautifully illustrated handbook of green ad growing things for both children and adults, contains many of these amazing facts and much much more. Looking at Plants takes readers through the plant world step-by-step, petal-by-petal, twig-by-twig and leaf-by-leaf-no root is left unturned. Teachers, paretns and children will find the numerous activities include in Looking at Plants enjoyable and stimulating. These exciting projects have been tested and proven effective against rainy afternoons in the city, long hot summer days in the country and, whether indoors or out, they all make sound scientific sense. Wouldn't you like to... make and unusual bowl of seeds? scare up some leaf skeletons? whip up a batch of very berry ink? follow a trail of fruit prints? rub some bark the right way?
