Kaianoho / Hawaiian Habitats Themed Set (PAL)

Put on your hiking shoes and your thinking caps for a trek through the Hawaiian rainforest! Young readers will cover a lot of ground, learning about Hawaiian habitats and the dependent and interdependent relationships of the unique organisms that live there.

The habitat-themed set of three leveled readers and a Big Ideas Science Book is the third in a series of Hawaiian culture-based science readers called Pāhana ‘Āina Lupalupa (PAL). PAL integrates Hawaiian language, culture, and place-based content with literacy and science concepts that meet national standards. Developed in ‘ōlelo Hawai‘i and translated into English, this exciting series was created through partnerships among a group of Hawai‘i educators, literacy specialists, and Hawaiian-language resource developers in consultation with scientists and cultural practitioners.
