The NSTA recently made the generous decision to open all of its NSTA Kids eBooks freely available on the web at nsta.org/ebooks. These digital, interactive readers are aligned to Next Generation Science Standards across K-5 grade levels and a great boost to parents and educators looking for rich, accurate, and freely available science readers for remote learning purposes. The catalog includes my own eBook, “Thinking Like a Scientist: Investigating Weather and Climate” as well as several others from respected science education colleagues and children’s authors.

Table of contents for my eBook, “Think Like a Scientist: Investigating Weather and Climate” available now and readable in most browsers: https://www.nsta.org/ebooks/GradesK-5/

The NSTA has gone a step further in supporting at home education efforts by providing a developing series of “Daily Do’s,” lessons outlines, pointers, and additional strategies for teachers and parents to use and construct meaningful experiences around both using the eBook and extending the learning into their home and surrounding, socially-distanced environment. Many of the resources support writing and verbal conversation around making sense of everyday phenomena. The Daily Do’s are available now, including the March 26th Daily Do connected to my currently free eBook!
