"Water is a liquid. LIquids are runny. Water has no smell, color, or taste. Water is one in a series of books that introduces young readers to the items living organisms need to survive. This necessary component of life is explored through defining water, where it comes from, who needs it, how they get it, and why it is important to living things. One sentence on a page makes that book inviting and the photographs support the text on each page. This simple book introduces the important concept of one of the things life needs to exist for the very early reader. It makes an excellent way to review living and nonliving things and then introduce this new concept. The rest of the books in the series include the other things all organisms need to live. The book includes a table of contents, a picture glossary, a one question water quiz, and an index. There is a notes section for an activity using water. Activity Take a walk around the house or classroom and outdoors. Make a list of the things you see. Then fold a paper in half and label the two colums needs water and doesn’t need water. Categorize the words on the list and illustrate them. This site has good information, but you have to scroll down through the ads. This site has some lessons about what living things need. - SimplyScience6/20/2012" - SimplyScience
