It's science week at TBA and today's topic is favorite science books to use.
Well I couldn't just pick one book so I picked a few from each of our units:
Properties of Matter: This is great for young readers and has simple explanations for matter.
Motion of Objects: I love the Let's Read and Find Science series of books. Force makes sense when you are comparing it to the playground.
Space: I love using this for writing. Steven Kellogg is a wonderful illustrated and this book is no exception. The children fill in the prompt "If you decide to go to the moon..."
Life Cycles: I think these books best explain science concepts in language children understand but not dumbing it down for them. I also love the beautiful pictures in the books.
Also for older readers this is the most humorous science book! This is truly a delightful read even for adults.
Check back this week for more science ideas!
