Another great book filled with science lessons covering tons of science topics from grades 3-6. These science lessons are more like experiments for the students to do. It has great ideas that can be done with the whole class and some that can be turned into science centers and be student-led.
Recommended grade level: for teacher use for grades 3-6

*Instructions for being a guiding instructor
*Extensive, well-organized lesson plans around 1-2 books (15 books total)

*Negatives: Not really for librarians, lengthy list of materials, messy activities, activity sheets more classroom-based
