More about "Going Home: The Mystery of Animal Migration"

October 30, 2011


Emily Morgan and Karen Ansberry, authors of two terrific NSTA (National Science Teachers Association )publications: "Picture Perfect Science Lessons" and "More Picture Perfect Science Lessons: Using Children's Books to Guide Inquiry" reviewed my book in the summer issue of NSTA's Science and Children. They compiled activities that encourage grades K-4 to "Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, and Evaluate" as they learn more about the mysteries of animal migration.

It's downloadable at: http://dawnpub.com/activities/NSTA_GoingHome.pdf

In fact, click on "Dawn Publications" below, then onto "Teachers/Librarians" Downloadable Activities, scrolling down to the Migration Book and you will see other activities too, including reproducible bookmarks of the ten migrating animals in the book. Enjoy the journey!
