About this product
- DescriptionHave you ever looked at the objects inside a curiosity box? What did you see and what did they feel like? Did you recognise some of them or were there things in there that you'd never seen before? Books that take the magical charm of collecting curiosities, joined together with the science behind some of the wonders of the natural world. Children will be inspired to take a closer look at objects and the world around them and begin to question how and why nature designs things in certain ways. Minibeasts focuses on the different types of minibeasts we encounter, such as insects, spiders and molluscs like slugs and snails. It links them to the habitats they live in and examines their behaviours and the roles they play in pollinating, composting and eating other bugs! Books that are brimming with science and encourage KS1 pupils to engage with core science and nature topics, while developing other key skills in thinking and reasoning in an utterly absorbing and charming way.
