To Look Closely: Science and Literacy in the Natural World

Product Description: Whether it's a trickling stream, a grassy slope, or an abandoned rail line, the natural world offers teachers a wonderful resource around which to center creative, inquiry-based learning throughout the year. Nobody knows this better than veteran teacher Laurie Rubin. In this guide, Laurie demonstrates how nature study can help a classroom of diverse students become careful, intentional observers of all they see, growing into stronger readers, writers, mathematicians, and scientists in the process.
