The Sassafras Science Adventures Volume 3: Botany

The summer-long, science-filled, adventure-packed journey blooms with a look at plants!

In The Sassafras Science Adventures Volume Three Botany, the zip-lining science adventure blooms for Blaine and Tracey Sassafras - and we want you to join the journey!

Join the Sassafras Twins as they travel to colorful locales to learn about plants.

Together, you will learn all about the wonderful world of plants as Blaine and Tracey zip around the globe. In the book, you will visit locations like:

  • The Amazon Jungle to pick up facts about orchids and ferns;
  • The pampas in Argentina to learn about grasses and wildflowers;
  • And the French countryside to discover several different kinds of trees!

The twins will meet a variety of local experts who help them along the way to learn about the variety of plants found around the world.

We want you to enjoy learning about botany, too!

And, we know that through every scary jungle leap, chilling ballad, and smelly odor in this living book will teach your students about plants in a way that they’ll never forget!

We know this because thousands of readers have already told us so. Here is what one of our Sassy-Sci peeps had to say about the third leg of our adventure:

I love the Sassafras books. They work great as a science unit but this is just PART of teaching them. This is a story, it has facts on the different topics but the point of the book is to get kids interested in this topic and have fun with it. When you are done reading each section you fill out a log book page (or lapbook) to go with the thing you learned, plants for this book, and it is your job to research it more. – Review by Trina

Did you know that Sassafras Science is more than just a book?

We actually have a full line-up to help you teach science!

You can enjoy this volume on its own . . . Or you can add the activity guide, SCIDAT logbook, or lapbooking guide to construct a full homeschool science curriculum! (Note - If you plan on using Sassafras Science as your main science program, we recommend that you choose either the activity guide and logbook combo or the lapbooking guide. Learn about the differences and similarities between the logbook and lapbook options.)
