Quick Overview

This volume of Picture-Perfect STEM Lessons for the upper-primary years uses a remarkable variety of books to teach STEM concepts and reading comprehension strategies. For example, you can pique students’ interest with The Inventor’s Secret; An Ambush of Tigers; and Rubbish to Treasure: A Kid’s Upcycling Guide to Rubbish. Then, through the accompanying lessons, you can teach ways to plan and carry out investigations; analyse and interpret data; and construct explanations and design solutions. Along the way, your students will invent toy cars, learn how scientists use technology to track individual animals within larger groups, figure out how to reduce plastic pollution, and tackle other real-world projects.
