  • We only have two Natural World books right now.MiltonT 15:00, 2 October 2006 (UTC)
  • I agree I hope we do a Natural World Book. --xixtas 04:12, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
  • OOOOOOOOoh bugs who wouldn't want that. Klingoncowboy4 20:44, 3 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Kids would love it. Dilaudid 01:03, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Plenty of scope. It would be a big project Ferretinator 16:58, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
  • I really like the idea. I'm concerned, however, about the number of questions that could be asked. --Iamunknown 06:42, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Kids love this sort of thing. Would be a big project though. 82.27.235.165 18:09, 28 December 2006 (UTC)
  • It would of been appropriate if we made a general book about animals. --Herraotic 18:10, 29 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Is bugs just a general US term for insects? What exactly is a bug? Xania Flag of Poland 2.svgtalk 16:26, 1 January 2007 (UTC)
  • Bug is a general term for any insect or similar creeping or crawling invertebrate. I do not know if it is only in the US or is also used in other places. --xixtas 23:19, 1 January 2007 (UTC)
  • The title should probably be changed to "Insects". Bart133 17:18, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Comments:

  • Noble cause but how much is it juristiction dependent? At the very least it should be called Californian Fifth Grade Maths. Link with the Open textbook thingo would be cool. The bellman 04:20, 1 November 2006 (UTC)
  • This would be great, esp. if we could get it to published status. Schools might consider buying it because it would be of real value to them. Iamunknown 06:45, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
  • Not going to work with diffrent curriculums
  • I think there are enough basic topics that could work with different curriculums

  • Interesting basic stuff. Dilaudid 01:03, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
  • This book will lay the foundations of knowledge that should be acquired at a young age and is predominant in the biology curriculum. --Herraotic 18:06, 29 December 2006 (UTC)

Wikibooks is a bit computation-centered as it stands – let's concentrate on something else? Dilaudid 01:03, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

well if it is, then it mean we have the expertise within wikibooks to do this and (hopefully) do it well. The bellman 04:07, 1 November 2006 (UTC)

Rocks and Minerals[edit]

Interesting topic but I'd leave this for later as its scope is quite narrow in comparison. Dilaudid 01:03, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Could be interesting depending on what's covered... I know a lot of kids are fascinated by trains, trucks, police cars etc. Elocina 00:13, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Comments:

  • A great example of a project that could benefit from a world-wide wiki environment. Dilaudid 01:03, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
  • An alternative name could be "introduction to flamewars for kids" The bellman 04:21, 1 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Hope this one wins, it will open up minds for the future.--Afa86 03:25, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Don't be so cynical. If kids don't learn this stuff sometime, they'll simply attack what they don't know, hence flamewars. But that's a worst case scenario, but my vote stands nonetheless.Ferretinator 17:04, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
  • Kids really need to learn this subject and that's why this should win. Supe95
  • I think this would be great. Iamunknown 06:43, 12 December 2006 (UTC)
  • This would be a cool book to actaully stop conflicts against religions.
