The award-winning NSTA Press® Picture-Perfect Science Lessons series combines science and reading in a natural way and provides easy-to-grasp background in physical science, life science, and Earth and space sciences. The classroom-tested lessons clearly identify the appropriate National Science Education Standards and embed carefully selected reading strategies.
Authors Karen Ansberry and Emily Morgan are elementary classroom veterans who've honed their approach to teaching science through their presentation of Toyota TAPESTRY–funded workshops to teachers nationwide. They know that elementary teachers are usually crunched for science instructional time and could often use refresher explanations of scientific concepts.
Elementary school teachers can use the picture books in combination with ready-to-use student pages and assessments to aid in guided inquiry. Also available: Collections of the picture books used in the series at reduced prices—including previously out-of-print titles—and prepackaged classroom supply kits for each of the lessons!
Collections of the trade books used in both Picture-Perfect Science Lessons and More Picture-Perfect Science Lessons are now available—each set packaged in a handy zippered canvas tote. The sets include engaging books such as Diary of a Worm, The Moon Book, and Dr. Xargle’s Book of Earthlets, as well as some previously out-of-print titles such as Bubble, Bubble and That Magnetic Dog. The 26 Picture-Perfect titles and the 29 More Picture-Perfect titles will be welcome additions to your school’s science and reading resources.
