Real Science-4-Kids Biology, Level I, presents college-level biological concepts at a 4th and 5th grade reading level. Chapters include topics such as taxonomy, the cell, the specialized organelle (the chloroplast), plants, protozoa, frog and butterfly life cycles, ecosystems and cycles.

MY REVIEW: 

I read this non-fiction book aloud to my children. 


This book is divided into ten chapters, and then sub-divided into sections varying between four to eight parts. At the end of each section is a summary before moving on to the next chapter.

We really liked this science book. The content is age-appropriate, and there is a great glossary of scientific terms at the back of the book.  Although the chapters on life cycles (flowers, butterflies and frogs) and plants (photosynthesis, parts of a plant, and how a plant grows) did not really contain any new information for my Grade 4 daughter, the chapters on taxonomy, cells, and protists provided good information at an introductory level.

MY RATING:

4 stars! We really enjoyed it and would recommend it!!

This book qualifies as:
