Literature &Science Breakthroughs offers strategies for using nonfiction, big books, novels, storybooks, pop-ups, poetry, and discovery books to bring all aspects of science to life for children in elementary classrooms. Teachers will learn how to go beyond reading "about" science and with a variety of hands-on activities help students gain first hand experience with scientific principles. Organized around the major science strands, the book looks at using children's literature to achieve science outcomes in the following areas:

  • life systems--plants, insects, and all forms of living things;
  • matter and materials--magnets, light, and air;
  • energy and control--wind, water, sound, and electricity;
  • structures and mechanics--functional design, pulleys, gears, and motion;
  • earth and space systems--seasons, weather, rocks, minerals, and the environment.

Background information, webs, skill charts, tools for evaluation,and an extensive bibliography complement this valuable resource.
