Publisher: NSTA Press
Author: Karen Ansberry
Teachers raved when NSTA Press published Picture-Perfect Science Lessons, 3-6. They loved its lively mix of kid-magnet books, Standards-based science content, and ready-to-teach lessons that incorporate the BSCS 5E learning cycle. So what could be more perfect? More Picture-Perfect Science Lessons, K-4! This volume offers 15 new lessons that combine picture books and inquiry to develop students interest in science and reading. More Picture-Perfect Science Lessons, K-4, follows the same winning formula that made the first volume a bestseller. The lessons cover 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 Tall, How Short, How Faraway; and Leo Cockroach, Toy Tester. The award-winning authors know from their own classroom experience how important it is for time-starved teachers to integrate science and reading in a natural way ... and how students with reading troubles can benefit from an extra nudge to get engaged in science texts.
