Science is all about figuring things out and literacy is how we communicate it out!
MackinVIA offers students and teachers fiction and non-fiction books in a wide range of topics. Within your school’s MackinVIA, books are organized to support the Disciplinary Core Ideas (DCIs) of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in easy to access groups. What a great way to add literacy to support science! The possibilities are endless! Just think, a student can choose any book within the DCI being studied, teachers can use them as mentor texts or as a read-aloud to reinforce or even launch science investigations!
In the elementary, why not support a science unit using time within the literacy block to learn and apply reading and writing skills related to the topics in the science investigations? This resource of science ebook groups can help you do just that!
