First Things First

Common Core

Next Generation Science


Why Use Children’s Literature?

  • Lack of Time - Integration is Key

  • Context for Concepts

    Earth & Space Sciences:

    Describe how day and night are caused by Earth’s rotation.


Why Use Children’s Literature?

  • Improved Reading and Science Skills

  • Engaging to Students of All Ages


Why Use Children’s Literature?

  • More Depth of Coverage

    “More Books to Read”

    section available at the end of each lesson.


Cautions

  • Story line may distract –stay focused on the science content

  • Be aware of “watered-down” science content

  • Be aware of misconceptions


Suggestions

  • Choose science objectives first

  • Collaborate with a knowledgeable colleague

  • Choose a variety of books, including fiction/nonfiction pairs


Colorful cartoons and easy-to-follow text introduce the history of measurement, from the ancient Egyptian system to the metric system.

The King has a problem. He wants to give the Queen a bed for her birthday, but no one knows the answer to the question “How big is a bed?”


This book explains what magnets do, magnetic and nonmagnetic materials, and uses of magnets.

Skitty is a dog with “magnetic” qualities. She doesn’t attract metal, like keys and spoons. She attracts food.


Why Read Aloud in Science?

  • Opportunity to model the strategies of proficient readers

  • Students’ minds are free to explore the meaning of difficult science concepts when the teacher does the decoding

  • Fine-tunes students’ observational/listening skills


Why Read Aloud in Science?

  • Being read to is the most influential activity for building the knowledge required for eventual success in reading (Anderson, Heibert, Scott, and Wilkinson 1985).
