Learning From the Land
Teaching Ecology Through Stories and ActivitiesBook - 1997
Travel through time and enter the worlds of molecules and woolly mammoths through engaging stories that breathe life into the dry bones of geologic history. From plate tectonics and mineral cycles to metamorphosis and reproductive cycles, these stories, whether used for read-alouds or silent reading, make abstract scientific concepts concrete and palpable. Extension activities focus on scientific facts, concepts, and methodology. The integrative approach of hands-on science and creative-writing lesson plans helps students explore ideas and reflect the depth of their learning.
