Must Read Mentor Text Linky: Science

This week we it took us a moment to think of a good science book...I guess we just don't have very thrilling science units.  Anyways, these books cover a wide variety of science topics!  We love how they lay out the information in a 'kid friendly' manner and come in levels, so our kiddos can read them as independent readers too!


This week, we're continuing our Pebbles, Sand, and Silt unit, so we'll be reading Let's Go Rock Collecting.  This will lay some good background about how rocks are formed, how they get to the places where we can see them, and types of rocks.  We included a freebie for your kiddos to organize the information they learned from the book during reading or after reading.



Have a super week!
