How are astronauts protected from space dust traveling at the speed of a bullet? How do ants know when another ant has died? Which woman scientist was called the Sun Queen and why? All these questions and many more are answered in the Wonders of Science Writing Lessons.
For students who savor science, Wonders of Science will be the perfect fit! Some of the included topics are bombardier beetles, Maria Telkes, and favorite inventions. Students will revel in retelling the stories of Jack and the Beanstalk and Archimedes. Do you have students who dream about what would happen if a meteorite fell nearby?
