Just Right Picture Books for Science Lessons and Science Experiments
This powerpoint presentation was given at the 2016 TESOL Convention in Baltimore, MD. Suggested titles of picture books to teach a unit on water conservation were discussed and possible experiments and activities were presented.
This list is a sample of the types of picture books we recommend for new arrivals. Picture books provide critical content information in a visually appealing format without the cognitive overload found in many textbooks.
