Acadia Files: Autumn Science

product image
$7.95

Acadia Greene wants answers. What happened to the frogs she used to see at her favorite local pond? Why do leaves change color in the fall, and why don't evergreen needles do the same? What is the water cycle, and what is transpiration? How do time zones work, and why does the sun set at different times in different places within a single zone? How do germs infect us? Acadia doesn't mean to do science, but she has questions and her parents refuse to simply give her the answers. "Conduct an experiment," they tell her. "Use the scientific method." So Acadia makes hypotheses, designs experiments, analyzes data, and draws conclusions. Acadia does science.

The author, Katie Coppens writes a recurring column for NSTA's middle school magazine Science Scope on science and literacy called The Integrated Classroom.

Acadia Files: Winter Science

product image
$7.95

A melting snowman leads her--of course!--to explore climate change and how to reduce her carbon footprint. The helium balloons at her eleventh birthday party beg questions--naturally!--of molecular structure, weights of gases, and neutral buoyancy. An afternoon making paper airplanes brings discoveries in aerodynamics. Tracks in the snow raise questions of how animals survive the winter. And an afternoon of sledding slides right into an investigation of momentum, acceleration, and friction. Acadia doesn't mean to do science--it just happens. She's curious, determined, bold, and bright--a wonderful STEAM ambassador!

The Acadia Files is a fun introduction to the wonders of science, using real-world scenarios to make scientific inquiry relatable and understandable. Parents and educators can use The Acadia Files to let kids discover for themselves what it's like to be curious about the world and to satisfy that curiosity with scientific thinking.
