The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien Original Publication Date: September 1937…
Katie Coppens is a great author to follow for STEM reads. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) This book is the first I have read of her Acadia Files series and I will definitely have to check out the previous books. Here are some of my favorite parts of this short chapter book:
- The importance of questioning-one question, leads to another, leads to another, and so on. Coppens shows that curiosity is powerful and important. I loved the ending “What will I learn next?”
- Her journal full of graphics, including one of the Scientific Method and some diagrams to show what she was learning.
- “How do we balance helping people with helping nature?”
This is a great book for emerging readers and could be used in the science classroom to show how our world is connected. It also shows how we can understand more by asking questions and researching.
