Description

Have your students make the connection between literature, science, and math with our Gro-Beast children's book, Zack's Alligator. In this beautifully illustrated book, all the fun begins for Zack (and your students!) when a small package arrives in the mail. Contained within is a small alligator keychain and a note from Zack's uncle. Following his uncle's instructions, Zack places his keychain in the sink and WOW! a huge, fun-loving alligator emerges! Have your class chart the growth of their own growing alligator. This book is a great way to begin some terrific science in your classroom! Paperback, 63 pages.

I thought an alligator came with the book but I was mistaken. My grandson loves the book, but an alligator to go with it would be nice.

Cellular Transport Book!

Although the description says this is an elementary/primary grades book, I've found it to be wonderful for my high school students when combined with the "Large Gro-Beast Alligator" also sold here. My students love to be read to, and I get some students each year who don't really read above this level. In addition, it makes the concept of Osmosis tangible for the students. Cellular transport is a scary topic for many students but this removes the fear. The activity I do is as follows: I start by reading this book to my classes. We then weigh a Gro-Beast Alligator and record data on a data chart. Each day a different student weighs their class's gator (teaches use of a balance for the first time). They record all data and at the end, they graph the percent change in mass. Excellent for showing hypotonicity. Then we let the gator evaporate and repeat the same process demonstrating hypertonicity. My students really get it after this activity.
