The number one compliment we hear from teachers is that the lessons are complete and ready to take back to their classrooms and use. Emily Morgan and Karen Ansberry, coauthors of the Picture-Perfect Science Lessons series since the debut of the Picture-Perfect Science books and workshops more than 10 years ago, authors Emily Morgan and Karen Ansberry have learned one thing for certain: elementary school teachers are constantly clamoring for even more ways to engage children in reading and science through picture books! To meet that demand, the 15 all-new lessons in Even More Picture-Perfect Science Lessons bring you: even more convenience: You can cover reading and science content simultaneously and save time with ready-to-use student pages and assessments. Even more confidence in your own expertise: you get relevant science concepts and reading comprehension strategies to keep your teaching on track. Even more ways to entice even reading-phobic children: each lesson makes students yearn to learn science from such captivating fiction and nonfiction picture books as Houdini the Amazing Caterpillar; Captain Kidd s Crew Experiments With Sinking and Floating; and The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind. Plus: this latest volume even connects the lessons to A Framework for K 12 Science Education and the English Language Arts and Literacy Common Core State Standards. Just as teachers have been hoping, Even More Picture-Perfect Science Lessons delivers the whole package: teacher-friendly lessons, strong standards-based science content, and a kid-magnet formula that will get students engrossed in science while they improve their reading skills.
