Middle School Science Minute: Best STEM Books
I was recently reading the March, 2020 issue of “Science Teacher,” a magazine published by the National Science Teaching Association.
In this issue, I read the article “Best STEM Books.” The books that appear in the list were chosen by a review panel made up of educators and other subject-area experts, all appointed by the National Science Teaching Association, and the Children’s Book Council.
They selected three books that are appropriate for grade 6-8 students. The list includes:
“How to Become an Accidental Genius” by Elizabeth MacLeod and Frieda Wishinsky
“Save the Crash-test Dummies” by Jennifer Swanson
“Saving the Tasmanian Devil, How Science is Helping the World’s Largest Marsupial Carnivore Survive” by Dorothy Hinshaw Patent
