Children will love becoming experts on excrement! From a pile of cow manure in a field to a huge murky cloud of whale feces in the ocean, there’s a lot of poop being made every day. Every animal makes poop, but did you know that this stinky stuff can actually be useful? Ranging from food to building materials to fuel and even medicine, The Scoop on Poop uncovers the secret world of one of the world’s ickiest substances. This new Science Slam! series will engross readers—and gross them out! Each of the six books is expertly crafted to meet early elementary and science curriculum standards, as well as introduce children to bizarre and interesting facts. Innovative, grade-appropriate activities and experiments, critical-thinking questions, and fascinating fact boxes will hold readers’ interests. These features will also introduce children to two fundamental components of scientific inquiry: making observations and drawing inferences. And, best of all, the activities are fun!
