Developed to enhance the teaching of Building Blocks of Science® units and other science curriculums, the Building Blocks of Science Literacy Series™: Plant and Animal Structures reader supports inquiry-based science lessons with engaging informational text. The content gives students a natural transition from hands-on investigations, builds background knowledge to reinforce conceptual learning, and lets students apply relevant nonfiction to their own real-world experiences. Educational studies show that children are more likely to engage with a reading exercise when the literature is related to a recent hands-on activity. The reader helps improve reading comprehension and aligns with the Next Generation Science Standards®.

The on-grade reader is available for purchase as a single printed copy (item #515003), pack of 6 printed copies (item #515003A), pack of 30 printed copies (item #515003B), and 30-student license to access the on-grade and below-grade eBooks online for 60 months (item #515003E30).
