I have decided to participate in TBA's Science Week! Here are some of my favorite science books to read with my fifth graders.
The Lorax by Dr. Seuss - I love using this book to talk about environmentalism and conservation. The students love the funny names like "truffula trees" and "thneeds", and they really seem to get into the story. The Lorax Project has great games and activities that go with the book. Also, I think the movie is coming out sometime this year!
Spectacular Science: A Book of Poems by Lee Bennett Hopkins - I like to integrate reading with science every chance I get. This book is a great way to merge the two. I love to use this book when we do our poetry unit in the spring. Snowflakes, stars, and a dinosaur bone are only some of the fun topics of the poems in this book. It also has great illustrations.
These are just a few of my favs! What are some of your favorite science picture books? Click here to join the linky party!
