Science and Children—July/August 2020


Volume 57, No. 9

Engaging Families

Many of us closed out the school year in an unprecedented way. Now we are considering what school will look like in the fall. To support our readers, Science and Children has reevaluated our upcoming themes. We will continue to provide support for teaching and learning in a wide variety of platforms. Many of the selections shared in this issue can be adjusted for at-home or virtual learning. Teachers and parents have forged a bond and a renewed a level of respect for each other during this pandemic. We will continue to need each other as we move back into school later this year.
