Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
How do magnets work? Why does my heart beat? What do worms eat? Parents and teachers field these and what may feel like hundreds of similar questions from kids in any given week. How might we best help children to learn and even to start investigating and finding their own answers? Now thanks to this helpful volume, adults can learn how to use picture books (Diary of a Worm, If You Find a Rock), fun crafts and simple experiments to guide scientific inquiry at an early age. This cross-curricular approach for grades kindergarten through fourth can enhance children's skills in reading, literature and science. Authors and veteran science teachers Karen Ansberry and Emily Morgan also list the specific scientific standards of learning to which each lesson is connected, a boon for any instructor. As for the three questions posed at the beginning of this review, they are all explored here, along with the picture books that both give answers and inspire more questions.

    About Picture-Perfect Science Lessons

    Authors and classroom veterans Karen Ansberry and Emily Morgan know you're short on time...so they've integrated science and reading in a natural way to help you teach both subjects at once. They know that students who aren't strong readers may be turned off by science texts...so they show how to use high-quality fiction and non-fiction picture books to engage students in grades 3-6 in hands-on, standards-based science inquiries. This book contains 15 ready-to-teach science inquiry lessons, complete with reproducible student pages and assessments. It covers a broad range of topics, and draws on such diverse children's books as Dr. Xargle's Book of Earthlets, Sheep in a Jeep, and Weird Friends: Unlikley Allies in the Animal Kingdom.
