Mammals Science Unit: Quick Start

Welcome to The Good and the Beautiful Mammals Science Unit

Mammals Science Unit includes activities, experiments, mini books, games, and more!

Before You Begin Studying Mammals

Our Mammals family-style science unit is fun and simple to teach!

Let’s look at what is included in your course and how to get started.

Required Items

You need only one copy of the Mammals unit for your family. Make copies of individual pages using the free PDF that was emailed to you after the purchase of the printed unit.

If you use this science course in a group setting, you must purchase a physical copy for each set of eight children in the class.

Please note: If you choose to return an unwanted unit or cancel an order, you will be charged the full amount for the PDF file; only the physical unit is refundable.
