The Natural Laboratory: Scientists in National Parks series takes a look at the research and responsibilities of scientists working in U.S. national parks. Each 7.5" x 10" photo-filled book explores the topography of the park, its natural resources, the specific projects that have been undertaken there and why these projects are significant. Each 48-page book in the series also features quotes from scientists working in the featured park, to better explain to readers how and why things are done
The biographies in this collection introduce students to influential women in science and technology, from astronauts to medical doctors. Each book includes a glossary, comprehension questions, a time line, and an extention activity.
As Victoria and Jasper were enjoying their new sunflower, Jasper gets pollen on his nose. A bee soon arrives which sends the characters running.
As they run through a baseball game screaming, "RUN! It's a bee!", all the players start to follow them. As they run through the school auditorium screaming "RUN! It's a bee!", all the actors start following them.
When they finally arrive back at their garden, the bee lands on Jasper's nose and licks the pollen off. He soon proceeds on his way, leaving the characters feeling silly that the bee never wanted to sting them, he just wanted the pollen!
