Description

All children love turtles Ė watching them, feeding them, and looking for them in the wild. So ... Kym wrote the Turtle Adventure! to teach about turtle taxonomy, the difference between reptiles and amphibians and turtle history. Is there a way to tell the age of a turtle by its shell? And how long do they live? What do they eat and how are they born? Iíve heard of hibernation, but what is estivation? Is a softshell turtle an mistake of nature? And can all turtles swim in the ocean? With a passion for turtles, what type of career could I have? What do I need to know before I buy a turtle for a pet? And what about turtle anatomy? Just how are they put together?

These questions and more are answered, with Kymís typical detailed lesson plans, vocabulary list, websites, field trip ideas, resources and books, and fun for all ages. The neatest part is the virtual dissection website included, covering opening a turtle specimenís shell and dissection. Use it to guide you through your own dissection, or give credit for virtual dissection! Fascinating, fun and informative!

Since there was so much information for the required FunSheetsTM, Kym split it into two age levels: Younger (Pre-K-4th) and Older (4th-adult). While they both include some pages the same (Turtle Report, Plant or Animal, Anatomy, Sea Turtles), the presentation is different.
