ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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, 3–5: 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 Animals That Live in Groups, students learn how scientists use technology to track individual animals, then students use simulated field data to graph the frequency of certain elephant behaviors.
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.
