Did you know that some sharks go through as many as 30,000 teeth in their lifetimes? Or that at any given minute, about 7,000 airplanes are flying over the United States?
Little readers will learn all sorts of fun facts like these in Capstone’s new Little Scientists series, published in collaboration with the Smithsonian. For grades PreK-2, Little Scientists investigates topics kids love best – from airplanes and coral reefs to sharks and space.
Visually dramatic and packed with graphic elements, such as charts, diagrams, maps, sidebars, and labels, the books keep all kinds of different kinds of learners engaged and moving through the text. Each of the books end with “Critical Thinking Using the Common Core” questions to encourage further thought and discussion.
Vetted by world-renowned scientists, Little Scientists has Smithsonian’s seal of approval and we hope readers too!
It’s STEM Friday! (STEM is Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)
