Shining Dawn Books - NaturExplorers: Flying Creatures of the Night ~A Review~

Did you know over 11,000 species of moths exist? Or that there are over 12,000 different kinds of beetles? Or over 1,100 types of bats? Or over 300 species of nocturnal birds? You will learn these interesting facts and so much more in Shining Dawn Books NaturExplorers: Flying Creatures of the Night.

Flying Creatures of the Night is 60 pages of information, activities and ideas designed to help you learn more about Nocturnal Flying Animals, Owls, Bats, Moths, Fireflies, Sound of the Night, Night Vision, Predator/Prey Relationships, Animal Classification and More!

Included are Literature Ideas, Hands-On Activities, Writing and Research Ideas, Bible Lessons, Poetry, Artist and Composer Information. There are ideas for additional research, including older/younger children and for Clubs and Co-ops as well as Notebooking Pages, Safety Information as well as a section on Why and Where to Study Nature.

I love that, other than getting your hands on related literature and some art supplies, everything you need is included. And if you want more, they give you links to additional information. Depending on the activities you choose to do this Nature Study could take a week up to a month or more!
