Developed to enhance the teaching of Building Blocks of Science® units and other science curriculums, the Building Blocks of Science Literacy Series™: Exploring Organisms 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 #515703), pack of 6 printed copies (item #515703A), and pack of 24 printed copies (item #515703B). The below-grade reader is available as a single printed copy (item #515703BGR) and pack of 6 printed copies (item #515703ABGR). The 24-student license lets you access the on-grade and below-grade eBooks online for 60 months (item #515703E24). The Spanish reader is available as a single printed copy (item #515703SP) and pack of 6 (item #515703ASP).
