Open Wide, Look Inside- Integrating Science & Literacy

Screen shot 2009-09-10 at 11.54.56 AMOpen Wide, Look Inside is a fabulous blog about integrating elementary math, science, and social studies with authentic children’s literature. Posts are plentiful and each post highlights a piece of children’s literature and how to connect the literature to other content areas.

This is such a vast resource that I have embedded the feed on the left edge of this blog.

Here is an example of a post on- The Science Book of Gravity

Applications for Science Teachers: I wish I had known about this resource when I was in the elementary classroom. Most elementary teachers are already using picture books to support literacy skills- and here are some ways to extend that instruction. Each post gives an overview of the book, connections, book information, plus links to additional resources. I highly recommend adding this blog to your RSS reader.
