Discover Outer Space, Learn How to Code, and Bust Fake News with New Page Plus Titles

by Kate Schefer, Digital Products Coordinator

At Lerner Digital, another season means more additions to digital initiatives and programs, such as Page Plus. Here’s a look at what you can expect to hit shelves this month.

New Frontiers of Space

Space is always an interesting topic for classroom and personal reading, because of all the things scientists are discovering about space every day, and all the things we have yet to find. The titles in New Frontiers of Space dig into what it takes to become an astronaut, travel to Mars, or study black holes. Stay on the cutting-edge with updated information about NASA work, and try your hand at some 3D printer activities related to each topic.

Mission: Code

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to learn a new coding language. Author Sheila Preuitt covers JavaScript, HTML, Python, and Ruby in four engaging and enlightening books. Sidebar activities throughout get readers to practice hands-on coding activities to test their skills. They’re sure to become expert coders in no time with this fun instructional series.

Fake News

It’s all adults can talk about these days, which means kids are asking lots of questions. What is fake news? How can we spot it? Where do we find it? And how can we stop it? Each title breaks down the different types of fake news readers may come across: from hoaxes and conspiracies, to satire and harmful propaganda. Sidebar activities test their comprehension and critical thinking skills, and provide links to additional activities to cement this knowledge. Build important digital literacy skills with this hard-hitting series.

With new titles being added each season, and a variety of additional content, Page Plus books are sure to keep your students engaged both on and off the page.
