This book affords you the flexibility to select those activities that best fit your students' instructional needs.

?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
