Science Literature Grades 1-3

Explore Our List of Titles Linked to the AB Science Curriculum

Sharing picture books and other trade books can greatly enhance the teaching of elementary Science. It is our hope that the selections in this guide 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.
