This time, I requested math literature that would match the rest of my curriculum from Kaplan Learning Company. You can check out the whole package below by clicking here.
Not only is this book great for teaching the various kinds of graphs, but I also had students use it to help them create a line graph to chart the changes in speed for our ramp and toy car experiment in science.
This is an excellent book (The Moon is Broke Together)! It talks about the phases of the Moon and how each phase is actually a fraction of a whole (full moon). The Making Literature Connections - Manual with Books - Grades 4-5 kit that comes with these books has a great activity that has students sort the phases in order of their fractions of the whole.
Another great perimeter and area activity goes with Spaghetti and Meatballs for All using snap cubes.
I haven't finished creating/copying all the activities, but I'm telling you, it's well worth the money even if you choose to purchase it with your own money!
How about you? Do you have any good books to link all the subjects together?
