Teaching Through Trade Books: Adaptations for Survival

by: Christine Anne Royce

This column includes activities inspired by children’s literature. This month’s issue has students experience nature by examining how seeds are transported from one location to another or consider what it takes for organisms to survive in an environment. Both activities allow elementary-age children to think about how outdoor spaces can be different based on location.
