More Picture-perfect Science Lessons: Using Children's Books to Guide Inquiry, K-4 (Google eBook)
More Picture-Perfect Science Lessons offers 15 new lessons that combine picture books and inquiry to develop students' learning interest in science and reading.
The sequel follows the winning formula that made the first book an NSTA bestseller. The lessons, following the 5E instructional model developed by the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study cover a wide variety of science content; physical science, life science, and Earth and Space Science. They include reproducible student pages and assessments. They feature embedded reading-comprehension strategies. And they make students yearn to learn from such engaging fiction and nonfiction books as Diary of a Worm, Sunshine On My Shoulders, How Big is a Foot?, and Leo Cockroach, Toy Tester.
The authors know how important it is for time-starved teachers to integrate science and reading in a natural way and how students with reading troubles can use an extra nudge to get engaged in science texts. More Picture-Perfect Science Lessons is the perfect supplement to your science program, and the perfect way to help students develop a love of reading and learning about science.
