Seasons of the Decidous Forest Biome  (ISBN-10: 1625131968 | ISBN-13: 9781625131966)

The deciduous forest has four distinct seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. The animals in this biome adapt to the climate by hibernating in the winter and living off the land in the other three seasons. The plants have adapted to the forests by leaning toward the Sun. This book enables students to understand the adaptations which are necessary for plants and animals to live in such diverse conditions.

Seasons of the Estuary Biome  (ISBN-10: 1625131976 | ISBN-13: 9781625131973)

Estuaries and the lands surrounding them are places of transition from land to sea, and from fresh water to salt water. Estuaries are protected from the full force of ocean waves, winds, and storms by the reefs, barrier islands, or fingers of land, mud, or sand that define an estuary's seaward boundary. This title will allow students to develop a model to represent the estuary biome, including the shapes and kinds of land and bodies of water in such an area.
