talk about science and reading
with students at Chattahoochee Elementary.
Today’s Science delivers in-depth coverage of important advances in biology, chemistry, environmental science, space, physics, and technology. It also illustrates how one scientific advance leads to another. Content in Today’s Science has the added benefit of correlating to state, national, Common Core, International Baccalaureate, and national STEM standards.
The second new database, World Almanac for Kids, is designed for elementary and middle school students. It is an excellent all-in-one resource for science and social science topics, including animals, plants, famous people, sports, career ideas, countries, states, maps and flags, space and astronomy, and holidays and celebrations.
World Almanac for Kids allows the Library’s young patrons to explore age-appropriate topics while developing online research skills with a trusted source of content. This kid-friendly database includes up-to-date articles, homework help tools, fun facts, hot topic articles, images, videos, maps, and interactive games and quizzes. World Almanac for Kids is an award-winning database that supports state, national, and Common Core standards.
