I was very excited when I saw that I was to compose a unit plan on Seymour Simon. I have always loved reading his books on science topics. I remember in elementary school my teachers reading books by him and I would love to check them out from the school library.
Each and every one of his books has wonderful facts about various topics in science and wildlife. They are great resources to keep handy in the classroom during science lessons. I think there are many of his books that would be great attention getters for new materials, or even to base an entire lesson around one of the many books he has written. The aftermath of reading one of his books is to find beauty in nature and to love and respect the Earth we live on.
Fourth grade students will love the books by Seymour Simon and will learn a lot by reading them. Some of his most popular books include Earth: Our Planet In Space, The Human Body, Wildfires, The Moon, and Animals Everybody Loves.
Seymour Simon is a very talented author and I was very glad I had him to be able to read more about his life and the books he has written.
