Description

Build literacy and science content knowledge with high-interest, appropriately leveled nonfiction books featuring hands-on lab activities. This dynamic collection of print and digital resources was specifically developed to meet the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Science Readers: Texas Edition: Grade 4 Kit includes 15 different titles that will develop students' reading and writing skills as they build content-area literacy in multiple strands of science: life science, physical science, Earth and space science, and scientific practices.

The lesson plans include differentiation strategies to help above-, on-, and below-level learners comprehend the material, and suggestions on how to differentiate instruction for the unique needs of English language learners. The lessons are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards, and the activities support STEM education.

Science Readers: Texas Edition: Grade 4 Kit includes:

  • 6 copies of each title in print and digital formats, and a corresponding lesson plan for each title
  • Digital resources including eBooks and audio recordings of each reader, lesson plans, student activity pages, assessments, and professional development resources
