December: Picture Book Science

Beginning next week, and for the rest of December (I think....), I'm going to focus on Picture Book Science.

You'll find science lessons paired with good quality picture books.  Reading aloud from a picture book is a great way to get students' attention - even, or maybe especially, older students who rarely have anyone read to them anymore.  Begin a lesson with a book and continue from there.  Or use a book to bring a lesson to conclusion. 

Some lessons have been previously featured on this blog, but the book pairing is new.  Other lessons are completely new! 

I hope you'll enjoy it!

In the meantime, here are a few favorite science-y picture books for which I don't have lessons (at least not yet). 

Spectacular Science: A Book of Poems

Science Verse

Odd Boy Out: Young Albert Einstein

And, make sure you come back tomorrow to take the Natural Things Quiz and be entered for a chance to win the grand prize!
