Summary Classroom veterans Karen Ansberry and Emily Morgan know elementary educators are usually crunched for science instructional time and could often use refresher explanations of scientific concepts. So the authors added comprehensive background notes to each chapter and included new reading strategies. They show exactly how to combine science and reading in a natural way with classroom-tested lessons in physical science, life science, and Earth and space science. Includes 5 new lessons: "Batteries Included," "The Secrets of Flight," "Down the Drain," "If I Built a Car," and "Bugs!" --from publisher description
