Book Talk Tuesday: What is Science?

Hey Everybody!  Today I decided to link up with Mrs.Jump's class for Book Talk Tuesday!  

I wanted to share a fun little story that's great for getting little learners to think about science.  The book is called What is Science? Written by Rebecca Kai Dotlich and illustrated by Sachiko Yoshikawa.  It's a simple rhyming book with great illustrations.  I love how it relates science to the study of "so many things" and it's perfect for starting a discussion all about science time in your class!

Here's a look!

After reading the story I'd hold a class discussion about "What is Science?" and create an anchor chart like this:

I might even have students draw/write their own ideas and hang them up around the anchor chart using a form like this.  (Click the form below to grab your own)
