The Temperate Forest: A Web of Life

The Temperate Forest: A Web of Life

Summary

Somewhere in the temperate forest, a rabbit munches on some grass. An oak tree extends its branches to soak up the sun. A red fox pounces on an unsuspecting squirrel. These are all examples of a biome at work: members of the community interacting with one another. The temperate forest biome is extremely diverse, with an amazing array of plants and animals. Come take a walk in the woods, and see how every living thing plays a part in the web of life of the temperate forest biome. Book jacket.

Lexile Measure



Please note that the Lexile measures for a small population of books have been recently updated. Enhancements were made to more precisely measure materials read in K-2 classrooms. Although the vast majority of books that have Lexile measures did not change, a small subset of books required updated Lexile measures.

Many products and services offer Lexile measures for their books and reading materials. We are working with the hundreds of companies that partner with us to transition them to the more precise Lexile measures. For more information on these enhancements and matching beginning readers with texts, visit lexile.com/beginning-readers.
