Developed to enhance the teaching of Building Blocks of Science® units and other science curriculums, the Building Blocks of Science Literacy Series™: Sky Watchers Below-Grade Reader supports inquiry-based science lessons with engaging informational text. The content, presented in below-grade readability for struggling readers, 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®. Soft cover.
