I’m back with a new list today! Living Books for Science! If you missed yesterday’s post it was on Living Books for History.
There are TONS and TONS and TONS of single books that I like for science but today I am going to focus on the series or authors. I would be here forever if I tried to start listing the singles! LOL
Most of these will be for elementary/middle school ages BUT there are a few that my high schoolers enjoy as well. I’ll mark those with ***.
*** DK Eyewitness
Magic School Bus – Don’t forget episodes! You can find them on Netflix and YouTube! The science kits are wonderful. They can be found on Amazon.
*** Horrible Science – They also have science kits but we haven’t tried them…YET!!
Let’s Read and Find Out Science – Great for younger kids!
See How They Grow – Another series that is really good for young kids.
National Geographic Kids Book Series (Although the magazine is AWESOME as well!!!!)
Discovery Kids – Another great series with a great magazine. *** The high schoolers really like the magazine!
The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That! – GREAT TV series on PBS to go along with the books!
*** Janice VanCleave’s Science Books – Hands on!!! Some of them have even captured the attention of my high schoolers!
*** Don’t Know Much About… – True, most of the books are history BUT there are a few that are on science topics. They have dinosaurs and the solar system to name two. My high schoolers like the adult versions of the books.
Usbourne – AWESOME science books! And another that I forgot to add to my history list!! ARGH! I need all my books unpacked!!!
My First Discoveries – GREAT for younger kids.
*** For Dummies Series – I know, I know… That’s not a nice title but the older kids really enjoy the books. They think they are funny and engaging. THAT’S what counts! 😉
*** Idiot’s Guides – Same as above. 😉 The site has videos for different topics. Click on those and it shows a selection of books.
*** Isaac Asimov
There’s another science series that I have for my older kids but I can’t for the life of me remember what it’s called! And of course, they are still packed!! ARGH!!!!
These are not books but are still GREAT- SmartLab Toys. Cailey and Colin love the Squishy Brain, Squishy Body and Squishy T-Rex. Wish I had remembered to add that to my dinosaur resources!! Good grief, if I only had a brain!!!
HAVE FUN LEARNING!!!
