Filled with fun activities and hands-on science projects, Backyard Science & Discovery Workbook: Southwest by botanist George Oxford Miller teaches kids to love and protect the great outdoors.


  • Features simple, fun introductions to astronomy, birds, geology and more, plus plenty of activities to help kids make hypotheses, experiment and observe
  • Includes 19 hands-on science projects, such as raising native caterpillars, making mushroom spore prints and attracting moths with an ultraviolet light
  • These put students in control of their own learning—every day is a little treasure hunt, and you never know what your children will uncover in their outdoor classroom
  • If they keep good records and share what they find, their observations can even help scientists learn more about nature in the Southwest
  • With 6 states and a wide range of habitats, plants and animals, the Southwest is a wonderful region for getting outside and discovering nature
  • There is so much to see and appreciate—even in your backyard or at a nearby park
  • This workbook covers the states of Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, western Oklahoma, western Texas and southern Utah
