Wow, these books are cool.
Let’s Watch the Weather, the new set in our beloved First Step Nonfiction brand, addresses the weather and climate strand of the Next Generation Science Standards. The books have gorgeous photos. Just look at that cover on What Is Severe Weather?!!! (Not that I’m a sucker for a dramatic weather photo or anything.)
These books explain all kinds of useful scientific weather information at a first-grade reading and comprehension level. And the books can be used to meet ELA-Literacy Common Core State Standards. Could it get any better? Yes! We have a FREE downloadable teaching guide to help you use this series in your classroom. Lessons include using an index, tracking local weather, experimenting with the heat of sunlight, forecasting, and more!
