ARLINGTON, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#NSTA–The latest book in the Picture-Perfect
Science series helps young students learn to read while they
read to learn about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics
(STEM). Teachers will find engaging ways to embed reading-comprehension
strategies into STEM lessons with NSTA
Press’s new Picture-Perfect
STEM Lessons, K–2: Using Children’s Books to Inspire STEM Learning.
The book features 15 kid-friendly lessons and activities, all of which
use high-quality picture books to integrate STEM subjects with language
arts. For example, after reading I Wanna Iguana, students
discover how to engage in argument from evidence, then build a model
habitat for an imaginary pet.
This book’s lessons include the easy-to-use features that have made Picture-Perfect
Science a best-selling series for more than a decade. Authors Emily
Morgan and Karen Ansberry provide fiction and nonfiction book
pairs plus background reading, materials lists, student pages, and
assessments. Each lesson supports science standards and the Common
Core State Standards for both English language arts and mathematics.
