Reviews - What do customers think about Zoology Coloring Book?
Great dissection prep for middle school Mar 26, 2010
I used the pages for the frog as a prep for dissection with seventh graders with limited English proficiency. Coloring was done together as a class with specified colors: ie. the entire digestive system was colored with colored pencils one organ at a time, sequentially, in pink. When finished, the entire organ system was easy to define. Other organ systems were, of course, colored using different colors. Students could not dissect until the coloring was completed satisfactorily. The result was that students knew what they were looking for and approximately where it would be found before they started. Even the foggiest student was successful in the lab. It took a lot of time, but it was definitely worth it. Specimens for dissection are extremely expensive but I felt that using this method, the students really learned something rather than just playing around with the lab.
Top of the Class Sep 3, 2007
Years ago my daughter and I took a college zoology class together. We asked for permission to use this coloring book instead of participating in class dissection. Permission was given and my daughter and I made the highest grades in the class.
Amazing resource Feb 10, 2007
This book sounds ridiculous, and I was mocked by my roommates for using it in college, but it taught me more than my Zoology professor and text book combined. A great resource for passing the tests as well as retaining the knowledge.
Great Learning Tool Jan 13, 2007
This is a unique approach to learning Zoology. The coloring aspect allows people to really connect what they are reading to the actual structures and ideas in taught in classes. Don't be fooled though, the idea isn't to just run through coloring everything to your heart's content. Follow the directions given and read the reading pages before/while you color and you'll learn a lot while having a little fun as well. The other coloring books available are especially recommended if you are a biologist and want to learn a little more about fields of biology that you are maybe not focusing on in college, Marine Biology or the human brain for example.
a BIG help Dec 27, 2005
I picked up this book for fun, and found it to be very useful in my Comparative Vertebrate Morphology Class in college. Great to learn all about different animals! Great as a gift for kids 12 & up.
