SCIENCE AND STORIES
Integrating Science and Literature
COMPLETE SET: 2 activity books with reproducible pages
By Hilarie N. Staton and Tara McCarthy. Students learn valuable lessons in science from activities based on 48 carefully selected children’s books. Obtaining knowledge, building problem-solving skills, understanding the nature of science, and seeing how science relates to society are key curriculum components as students perform activities based on events in their favorite stories. For example, while reading about drought in The Legend of Bluebonnet, students place a saucer of water in a sunny spot, frame a question (what will happen to the water?), and then collect, analyze, and explain data that contributes to a scientific understanding of evaporation. Each book offers 24 activity ideas fully described and supported by reproducible handouts. Suggested resources. Illustrated. 8½" x 11". Good Year. ©1994.
