Description

Books that explore science through adventure. The Acadia Files: Autumn Science presents five stories of fall, each one followed by Acadia's science notebook pages with her simple explanations and lively, whimsical drawings of natural phenomena. The Acadia Files is a fun introduction to the wonders of science, using real—world scenarios to make scientific inquiry relatable and understandable.
Parents and educators can use The Acadia Files to let kids discover for themselves what it's like to be curious about the world and to satisfy that curiosity with scientific thinking. Acadia Greene wants answers. What happened to the frogs she used to see at her favorite local pond? Why do leaves change color in the fall, and why don't evergreen needles do the same? What is the water cycle, and what is transpiration? How do time zones work, and why does the sun set at different times in different places within a single zone? How do germs infect us?
Acadia doesn't mean to do science, but she has questions and her parents refuse to simply give her the answers. "Conduct an experiment," they tell her. "Use the scientific method." So Acadia makes hypotheses, designs experiments, analyzes data, and draws conclusions. Acadia does science.
