360 pages • 8 x 10
Using fiction and nonfiction picture books to teach life science, K–2
Think about and teach life science in a whole new way. Each of the 22 lessons in this book is built around a pair of books that introduces a critical life science concept and guides students through an inquiry-based investigative process to explore that idea. Each lesson starts with a hypothesis, or "Wonder Statement", and comprises 3 stages: "Engaging Students", "Exploring with Students", and "Encouraging Students to Draw Conclusions". Bringing high-quality science-themed picture books into the classroom engages a broad range of students, and will help them see science and inquiry in a new light.
