Strong Science - Animals is a language-based science series for primary students featuring animals that all Canadian students will recognize. Photographs and Indigenous artwork illustrate the series. Common learning objectives in science curricula across Canada are addressed, and suggestions for extending the learning to other curriculum areas, including Indigenous cultural awareness, language arts, math, and art, are included in the teacher’s guide.

In this series, author Kim Soo Goodtrack, Lakota, features an animal in each story, which holds cultural significance in many Indigenous cultures. The engaging stories provide factual information in an easy-to-read format for children to learn science concepts and build literacy skills. They promote respect for animals and Mother Earth, and their illustrations communicate additional cultural information through Lakota symbolism and designs. Further cultural connections are identified in the teacher's guide. Refer to the guide to explore the books' Indigenous connections fully.

The Ducks Fly Away is an EP3 (Early Primary 3) book in the Strong Science - Animals series. Font size decreases as language complexity and word count increase across levels: EP3 books have approximately 80 words. Each book is 6.5" x 5.5".
