Synopsis

Literature-based Science and Math Children's Books and Activities to Enrich the K-5 Curriculum by Judith Ford, Christi Hefner, Kathryn Roots (Library Information Specialist, Norman Public Schools, Oklahoma, USA) Lewis

When you combine science instruction with the enjoyment of literature you achieve new learning dimensions. The ideas, selected books, and exciting activities described in Literature-Based Science allow you to make learning about science interesting. The book is organized by grade levels, with each level divided into thematic units. Student objectives are clearly stated for each science theme, followed by a fully annotated list of the best children's books that use science as part of their stories. The authors also describe related activities and follow-up activities that help make reading and learning fun. This book affords you the flexibility to select those activities that best fit your students' instructional needs.

Reviews

?The authors draw on their experience as teachers and library media specialists to offer detailed, creative, and practical suggestions for classroom activities relating to the annotated bibliographies provided. Librarians will find the book useful for collection building in the sciences, while whole language teachers will appreciate the detailed suggestions for individual and group projects using trade science books to enhance learning.?-Booklist/Reference Books Bulletin
