8 page (two printed 8.5X11 sheets) accurately illustrated guide to North American crawly creatures, using similarities between types of crawlies to highlight how taxonomy works. Excellent for creating awareness of local biodiversity if you send the wee ones out in the school yard with the guide, as crawly creatures can be found in all ecosystems, even those heavily modified by humans. WASL friendly if you're in Washington State.
This is a Zip file containing the cover and contents for a charming and accurate (created with a government archaeologist) story about tool making by the ancient people who worked and lived at high altitudes and modern ethics when finding artifacts. Follows the 8,000 year history of a knife blade. Talks about methods of tool making, resource use, trade, and organic vs. stone technology.
This file contains: The double-sided color cover in its own file so it can be printed separately on heavy stock or in color. Also it contains the contents of the coloring book, double sided in folio order.
How to print and bind: Use a printer with a duplexer, or tell the printing service to print on 2 sides. Paper size is Legal, meaning it is 8.5 inches by 14 inches. If you do not have duplexer you can print one side, then flip them over and put them back in the paper tray and print the second side. A heavier card stock or paper used for the cover will extend the life of the book. Once printed, stack the pages and fold in half. You can use a long stapler and staple the inside of the fold when the book is laying open (like commercial coloring books) or fold the book closed and staple the fold near the edge.
