The National Science Resource Center has launched a new series, "Science and Technology for Children BOOKS," to add a much requested literacy component to a popular curriculum for elementary students. Each book is designed to be used in conjunction with teaching the STC unit of the same name or as a stand-alone resource that conveys topics in a way that makes science interesting and relevant.
Each of the sixteen books in the series is 64 pages, colorfully illustrated with drawings and photographs and has been reviewed by a nationally recognized reading specialist. The books are designed to meet the needs of school children from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Both the project's and publisher's web sites are given.
