In Our Incredible World Jesse and Seka, two cool tweens, must do a science project on biodiversity. In the company of two scientist-mentors they discover that the slimy green world of leeches, algae, turtles, frogs and bugs in their high-rise backyard is actually a really cool neighborhood - home to thousands of different species.
When they learn that the wetland may be destroyed to make way for a housing development they decide to help try to save it. By collecting, analyzing and presenting biological data, they manage to fulfill their assignment and help convince authorities to protect the wetland.
"This accessible, kid-friendly curriculum would provide a good introduction to topics of species diversity and wetland ecology, the scientific process of conducting biodiversity assessments and the importance of local stewardship." - Green Teacher Magazine
