Enjoy a day in one of the most dynamic habitats on earth: the salt marsh. Fun-to-read, rhyming verse introduces readers to hourly changes in the marsh as the tide comes and goes. Watch the animals that have adapted to this ever-changing environment as they hunt for food or play in the sun, and learn how the marsh grass survives even when it is covered by saltwater twice a day. An activity on adaptations is included in the “For Creative Minds” section.
This individual eBook App will read-aloud in both English and Spanish with manual or auto page advance. Switch language any time and the page text changes and the reading restarts on the same page with your newly selected language.
A Day in the Salt Marsh is designed to be both a fun-to-read story and a launch pad for discussion and learning. It features a 5-page For Creative Minds educational section in the back. And, through the "More.." button on the navigation bar, you will find a 54-page cross-curricular Teaching Activity Guide (includes 3 coloring pages available for printing on our website), 3 interactive quizzes (Reading Comprehension, For Creative Minds, & Math Word Problems), and a page of Related Websites (linked with parent gate) for further study.
There is also an optional login feature (on the navbar with parent gate) so that you can view A Day in the Salt Marsh on your computers (login through our homepage), androids (new App available in March), and other devices). The login also enables eBook access though our free Fun eReader App and consolidation with other Arbordale titles.
