"For teachers eager to integrate STEM into their school day, these 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 and English language arts through high-quality picture books. You'll help your K--2 students engage in STEM activities while learning to read and reading to learn. 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. Includes: fiction and nonfiction book pairs; background reading, materials lists, student pages, and assessments for each lesson; and connections to science standards and the Common Core State Standards for both English language arts and mathematics."
