Knowledge Cards - Extreme Nature
The Highest, Deepest, Widest, Smallest, Heaviest, and Fastest Places and Living Things
Not one for mediocrity, Mother Nature frequently pushes the envelope, creating something so extraordinary that it eclipses others of its kind. In the plant and animal kingdoms, she has endowed certain species with exceptional size, speed, or longevity. On the Earth’s surface, she has carved features so spectacular that they draw visitors from across the globe to witness their magnitude.
This deck of Knowledge Cards covers forty-eight of Nature’s superlatives in the areas of geography, biology, and climate. Which mammal bears the most young? (No, not the rabbit.) Where will you find the world’s driest and wettest locations? (On opposite sides of the planet.) Which insect is the most destructive? (One of their swarms covered 2,000 square miles.) With fascinating answers to questions like these, Extreme Nature will delight inquisitive thrillseekers of all ages.
With 48 fact-filled cards per package, Knowledge Cards are a great source of condensed information—all in a deck the size of a pack of playing cards.
Card size: 3¼ x 4 in.
