If you are interested in bringing science education to your 4th and 5th grades through the vehicle of literacy, I have a some tools that may be of interest

How the ResQ series can bring issues of biodiversity, environmental science and engineering to life through reading.

  • Use ResQ and the Baby Orangutan or ResQ Takes on the Takhi  in a two-four week program

  • As a companion to the reading, writing and vocabulary assignments the teacher may assign, I will provide the teacher  with a 3x3 Choice Board for either of the titles focusing on NexGen Science Standards. Topics included are: Ecosystem dynamics; Earth and human activity; and Engineering design. The Choice Boards will include interesting supplemental information for the students and for each square there will be classroom activities.

  • Author visit - virtual or in person - may be arranged at the conclusion of the program.

  • To arrange a program, receive Choice Boards with a suggested key, guidance from the author, and access to a publisher discount for purchase of books for your class, contact the author through this website or directly at
