This one is my own book, which I’m quite thrilled with. It follows four characters—the beaver, Jon, Jesse, and Max—as they adventure with a Canadian science invention or discovery for each letter of the alphabet. From A is for Acetylene to Z is for Zipper (or B is for Blackberry to Y is for Yukon Gold Potato), Canadians are totally inventive. This title has been authorized for use in both BC and Alberta and is intended for Grades 4–9.
I consider this to have “the best website ever” to accompany a picture book. Check is out here and tell me what you think. It includes:
- over 60 more Canadian inventions and discoveries
- dozens of teaching ideas in language arts, math, science, social studies, and games
- links to other sites connected to Canadian science
- a complete scavenger hunt of Canadian science ready to print and go…and lots more
You can even order it at my store.
