Spectacular Science Stories

My students need 44 books such as "Do Dogs Make Dessert?: A Book about how Animals Help Humans" that will enrich their understanding of science standards.

Students Struggling with Science: Please help by purchasing Spectacular Science Stories for our library.

Many of our students have had very limited exposure to trips, experiences, and museums, which normally enhance scientific understandings. Our students are performing poorly on science standardized tests.

We need an increased supply of science read-alouds and stories to increase the interest and understanding among our students. These engaging texts will enrich the understanding of our students by exposing them to science concepts during daily read-aloud or story time and while reading for enjoyment.

You will make it possible for my students to read and listen to these engaging texts that will increase their understanding of science concepts and will therefore increase their achievement on standardized tests.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
