Explore Rivers and Ponds! by Carla Mooney
Freshwater habitats are fascinating and diverse.  Each body of water contains an abundance of life. Kids will enjoy the 25 projects that are included with the entertaining and informational content.  Using everyday materials, children can learn about rivers and pond environments by making projects such as a fishless aquarium, and pouring casts of animal tracks.
