NF PB Journey: STEM Books

STEM

What is STEM? Is it a plant? Is it an animal? Is it a machine?!!!!!

It’s an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

As writers of nonfiction picture books, it’s important we learn about picture books that support STEM classroom learning.

And guess what? Charlesbridge has a very handy list of their titles that support STEM!

CLICK HERE to see the list. While you’re at it, print it out like I did and add it to your writer’s notebook files you’re collecting on Charlesbridge.

Plus, go ahead and order in oodles of these titles from your local library. Then read them! Then list them in your reading log. And evaluate your favorites using your Nonfiction Picture Book Rubric (see the previous post here on my blog for a link to the free download.)

This is all part of what I do when I study a publisher. And this is all part of what I’m doing to target Charlesbridge. You can do these activities, too, if you want to follow along!
