I'm linking up with Collaboration Cuties today for their Must Read Mentor Text linky. I love this linky, but my wallet does not! I have a huge wishlist on Amazon and Barnes and Noble right now, and I seem to keep adding to it each week after the linky party!
This week's topic is science. As I have shared before, most of my science consists of hands-on activities, but I do use mentor texts to help us learn facts in a fun way. The book I want to share with you today is one that my kiddos and I will be reading next week.
He has a great website here that I was just introduced to. I shared with my students many of the question/answers that people have asked him about how he first started to write and why he writes nonfiction books when we started planning our own informational pieces. Many of my students were surprised that he chose to research and write about things that he had questions about. It was funny to watch them realize that he is a person who learns too!
What are your favorite science mentor text?
