Summary
Loaded with hands-on, kid-friendly projects -- teaches budding nature collectors techniques for cleaning, caring for, and displaying discovered treasures. Coming home from the beach or a walk in the woods with a fine collection of rocks, shells, pine cones, and seed pods is easy. The trick is knowing what to do with them once you get them back to your room. The real fun comes from identifying, preserving, and displaying your treasures! The opening chapter introduces kids to different ways of creating their personal field guides for keeping track of what they see, when and where they see it, and what makes it interesting. Theyll move on to techniques for cleaning and caring for treasures, such as drying flowers, pressing leaves, and desalinizing rocks and shells. The books drawings and photographs will help kids discover what to look for when they examine feathers, seeds, and minerals (and recognize the difference between sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic). Extra projects focus on display; making shadow boxes, creating collectors cases from egg cartons and candy boxes, labeling, hanging, and mounting collections
