Geckos To Felines: A Zoo-Based Comparative Zoology Course – Ebook
Geckos To Felines encourages students to notice the similarities and differences in living organisms.
Directed to select just one or two visible characteristics for study and comparison, students complete detailed informational logs about each animal while gaining an understanding of the broader connections in nature. For example, a student who selects ears as their focus of study soon learns that many animals share the triangular, upright ear style of the large cat featured in the book’s logo.
Combine Geckos To Felines with monthly full-day zoo visits and you’ll easily meet the requirements of most states for a year of life science with lab work, without ever opening a textbook or forcing them to “learn” high school-leve science.
