Picture-Perfect STEM Lessons - Years F-2
For teachers who are eager to integrate STEM into their school day, Picture-Perfect STEM Lessons is an exciting development. This book's 15 kid-friendly lessons convey how science, technology, engineering and mathematics intersect in the real world. They embed reading-comprehension strategies that integrate STEM subjects, as well as English, through high-quality picture books. You’ll help your F–2 students engage in STEM activities while they learn to read and read to learn.
Picture-Perfect STEM Lessons F–2 draws on diverse and attention-grabbing books such as The Handiest Things in the World, The Day the Crayons Came Home and I Wanna Iguana. The lessons will lead your students to ask questions and define problems; obtain, evaluate and communicate information; and engage in argument from evidence. Along the way, students invent a handy backpack, design their own process for recycling crayons and build a model habitat for an imaginary pet. Through these lessons and activities, all young students, including reluctant scientists and struggling readers, will quickly find themselves absorbed in STEM-related discovery.
