Picture-Perfect STEM Lessons, F–2
Using Children’s Books to Inspire STEM Learning
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 the 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.
Along with these new lessons come the easy-to-use features that have made Picture-Perfect Science a bestselling series for many years:
fiction and nonfiction pairs
background reading, materials lists, student pages, and assessments for each lesson
connections to the Australian Curriculum.
Picture-Perfect STEM Lessons is a powerful tool for guiding instruction. You'll love how effective this book is, and your students will love learning about STEM.
