Pass the Energy, please!
Here’s a favorite of elementary science teachers for the food chain. Each of nature’s creatures “passes the energy” in its own unique way. In this upbeat rhyming story, the food chain connects herbivores, carnivores, insects and plants together in a fascinating circle of players. All beings on Earth ? from the anchovy to the zooplankton ? depend upon the green plant, which is the hero of the story. Barbara McKinney’s special talent shines again (see also A Drop Around the World) for being able to present the science curriculum so concisely, creatively, and cleverly.
