Explore Our List of Titles Linked to the AB Science Curriculum

This guide began as a way to help pre-service teachers at the University of Lethbridge connect to current, high-quality science titles that support the Alberta Curriculum. The grade-specific lists above will continue to evolve, and we encourage you to send suggestions using the contact information below. It is our hope that the selections will provide a starting point for two important activities: 1) Read-alouds to introduce and discuss scientific concepts while exploring the language and art of good literature; 2) Supporting and encouraging inquiry while providing meaningful opportunities to read informational text. The links below include sources for learning more about effective ways to use literature in the science classroom. The links also include comprehensive lists of science-themed literature including two notable projects from the University of Alberta.
