The fourth graders at John A. Walsh Elementary School begin the school year learning about many things. In science, our unit in the first quarter is on the human body. Students eagerly work on the many investigations that guide them on learning about bones, muscles, and coordination. Throughout the unit, they are able to construct model arms and legs using craft sticks, rubber bands, paper clips, and small rubber tubes. However, one of the most exciting parts is the dissection of an owl pellet!
I would like to be able to incorporate more reading into the science program, and I have found the perfect novel to use as a read aloud! Judy Moody, M.D. The Doctor is In! In this novel, Judy's class also embarks on an exploration of the human body and even dissects an owl pellet. My class will definitely enjoy the connections they make between their own learning and Judy Moody's. It willd also help to spark discussion in class and help the students to develop a love of learning and reading!
