Thinking Like a Scientist - grade 5
I was given this book by the publisher. The review is solely my own honest opinion.

I was a former teacher of fifth and six grade, plus I had two gifted students. This book would have been a valuable resource in my classroom and in my own home to help children think at a higher level. There are many examples of uses of various materials, including literature.

Review by: Laura Von Staden, MiddleWeb - September 12, 2019
Thinking Like a Scientist is a very handy guide that is extremely well written and truly addresses key components (at a middle-grades level) of how scientists do their work. And although the target audience is advanced fifth graders, the lessons could easily be used or slightly tweaked to use at any middle school grade level. I recommend this book for all middle-grade science teachers.
