Super Science Facts: Life at the Extremes

by Susan Rose Simms

What does it take to live in the hottest places on Earth? What about the coldest, the highest, or the deepest? Some animals live in places where no human could survive. Their bodies can function in these extreme settings. They know how to find food, water, air, or whatever they need. What are some of these creatures, and what do they do to stay alive.

Super Science Facts entertains readers in grades 5 to 12 with fun science facts and colorful images on every page that support reading comprehension. The minimal text format (1,700 to 2,000 words per book) introduces content vocabulary defined in context and repeated in a glossary.

Glossary: adapt, altitude, antelope, blubber, ethanol, extremophile, glucose, glycerol, hibernate, metabolism, nutrients, organ, photophore, predator, pressure, prey, tardigrade, tundra
