Alex is part of the Gumshoe Gang at Watson Elementary and is a science fanatic. He and his friends help solve cases that happen in their school. This time Alex is the one affected by a crime and the case revolves around him. Someone has destroyed his Science Fair project! Can the Gumshoe Gang find the culprit before the Science Fair tonight? Will Alex still be able to participate in the Science Fair he was so excited about? These mysteries are perfect for your early fluent reader. With longer sentences and fewer illustrations, these are suited to keep readers guessing as they solve for clues. Paired to the nonfiction title Winning By Waiting.
Home, Sweet Home! This title is about Earth, the planet we live on! The layers of the Earth, how it relates to the other planets in our solar system, and how it is the only known planet to sustain life, as far as we know, are all discussed in this science title. Learn about how the Earth rotates on its axis, giving us day and night, and how it orbits and is warmed by that giant star we call the Sun. This book will allow students to make observations to determine the effect of sunlight on Earth’s surface.
Five and counting! So far, astronomers have discovered five dwarf planets in our solar system. Pluto, which was once thought of as the ninth planet, is today classified as a dwarf planet. This book looks at the current dwarf planets, characteristics, size, and orbital patterns, as well as the three rules scientists follow to characterize these tiny, round space objects. Every day new discoveries are being made. Who knows how many dwarf planets we will find in the future! This book will allow students to understand that patterns in the natural world can be observed, used to describe phenomena, and used as evidence.
Our closest solar system is about 10 light years away. It has two main types of planets. Some are rocky and small, like planet Earth, while others are huge balls of gas, like Jupiter. Learn about how astronomers once thought our solar system was the one and only, to how they have now discovered hundreds of stars with planets orbiting them, which means there could be billions of solar systems in outer space! Just maybe, these alien worlds could host life, like our own amazing planet. This book allows students to use observations of the Sun, moon, and stars to describe patterns that can be predicted.
