Regardless if science is taught in a classroom, at home, or outdoors, in a formal or informal setting; a trade book can be a source of inspiration, curiosity or information for children. A good story can serve as a catalyst for future questions, ideas, and learning opportunities. With that in mind, teachers can capitalize on the use of trade books by maximizing instructional time and allowing trade books to serve as a bridge between many different skill and content areas. Join us as we examine strategies, engage in activities, share trade books, and provide examples of varying ways to integrate science content with children’s trade books. Throughout the session we will connect some featured and favorite trade books to certain literacy strategies in order to help students learn science content.
