Ultimate Field Trip 3: Wading Into Marine Biology

1999 Picture Books
Ages: 8 - 12 yrs.
Author: Susan Goodman
ISBN: 0-689-81963-3
Review:
A writer and photographer tag along when Boston middleschoolers visit the Bay of Fundy to study the effects its dramatic tides have on sea and shore life. The result? The reader can learn almost as much as the class did about the rhythms and inhabitants of Maine's tidal zones--without getting his or her feet wet. Text book meets scrap book in a volume that uses snippets of conversation from the students and their instructors along with plenty of interesting photographs to make the science real, relevant and appealing to ages 8 and up.
