I love using picture story books for teaching anything and everything! I love the way rich literature enables imagination and wonder, and empathy and connection in students. These are wonderful starting points for inquiry learning driven by curiosity and care.
Through a ‘STEAM through Picture Story Books’ series, I want to highlight some simple opportunities for using picture story books to provoke thinking around STEAM concepts.
I would love to hear any ideas you have that connect to the books I share.
JUST ONE BEE

This beautiful picture story book describes how one little bee makes a difference on her own. It poetically describes the ways bees have an impact on our world.
