Check out this section on thermals that is found in lesson 14 of the text!
Have you seen birds soaring in circles? How do they stay in the air when they are barely flapping their wings?
“Thermals are columns of air that rise in the atmosphere. Large birds, like raptors and vultures, use thermals to soar and glide for a long time. They ride thermals to gain altitude while conserving energy. Some birds like the Andean Condor only flap their wings during takeoff and when they land. They rely on thermals to carry them as they look for food.”
There are many other interesting facts you’ll learn throughout the text – about the real world!
An instructor guide is also included which outlines the lesson objectives for each chapter, ways to support your student, tips to support different learning styles, extension activities, an answer key, and more!
The instructor guide provides a wealth of information and support and is invaluable to this set!
