5th Graders at SMA Integrate STEM Literate in Reading

Mrs.Bridget Berry's 5th Grade Reading and ELA class at STEM Magnet Academy are currently working in the Guidebooks Unit, "The Making of a Scientist."  They are reading about great scientists of the past and present. They recently read all about Galileo Galilei and Isaac Newton. In addition, they studied the evolution of the telescope.  After reading the evidence, they each chose which of the two great scientists contributed the most to the telescope. Students participated in a short debate based on the texts and their own perspective.  Students agreed that both contributed greatly to the advancement of the telescope. However, students in the photos each proudly pointed out which scientist they chose.
