How do you improve upon perfection? For years, new and experienced elementary school teachers alike have extolled the virtues of Picture-Perfect Science Lessons the expertly combined appeal of children s picture books with Standards-based science content.

The award-winning, bestselling book presents ready-to-teach lessons, complete with student pages and assessments,that use high-quality fiction and nonfiction picture books to guide hands-on science inquiry. This newly revised and expanded edition of Picture-Perfect Science Lessons manages to surpass the original.

Classroom veterans Karen Ansberry and Emily Morgan, who also coach teachers through nationwide workshops, know elementary educators are usually crunched for science instructional time and could often use refresher explanations of scientific concepts. So the authors added comprehensive background notes to each chapter and included new reading strategies. They still show you exactly how to combine science and reading in a natural way with classroom-tested lessons in physical science, life science, and Earth and space science. And now they offer five brand-new lessons Batteries Included, The Secrets of Flight, Down the Drain, If I Built a Car, and Bugs! bringing the total to 25.

As always, the appropriate National Science Education Standards are clearly identified throughout. Picture-Perfect Science Lessons draws on such diverse and engaging books as Dr. Xargle s Book of Earthlets, A House for Hermit Crab, Rice Is Life, Oil Spill!, Sheep in a Jeep, and Weird Friends: Unlikely Allies in the Animal Kingdom. As a result, both reluctant scientists and struggling readers will quickly find themselves absorbed in scientific discovery. You'll love how effective this book is, and your students will love learning about science.
