Journal ArticleDigital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

This month's Teaching Through Trade Books column focuses on three books about decomposers: Compost Critters, A Pill Bug’s Life, and A Slug's Life. Activities for grades K-3 and 4-6 help children learn about animals’ basic needs and the process of decomposition while using the work of authors who clearly enjoy writing about scientific topics.
