This story has supernatural elements of giant evil robots with features like claw hands and laser eyes. The robot tried to destroy the town while people try to stop it.


This is a story about a little girl who builds a robot for her science fair project. The robot becomes dangerous and has different features like laser eyes. It becomes a bad robot and tried to take over the world. It is very entertaining and has a good storyline.

I think I love everything by Mac Barnett and Dan Santat. So much genius in one book kids really respond to their humor. Bonus points for making the main character a female. We need more women in science fields.

Fun with a thesaurus and physics dictionary?

In Mac Barnett's SF book Oh No!: Or How My Science Project Destroyed the World we follow a young, ambitious girl who comes up with an amazing idea for the science fair by creating a huge robot. It is bound to stand out, but not in the way she wanted. Chaos erupts! She seeks the way to stop it through the power of science. This beautiful, colorful book is great for a RA.

UDL principle 3.8 increase mastery-oriented feedback and EL 6 continually monitor students‘ comprehension work well to determine how well they are grasping the material presented in the book. #ucflae3414su20

Oh No! is a fun SF book that is written by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Dan Santat. This book is about an extremely smart young girl who decides to build a giant robot for the science fair at school. Even though she thinks that she has the first place win in the bag, unexpected mayhem and craziness happens at the science fair! Do you think she will pull out the win? Read to find out what crazy evens happen at the science fair! #ucflae3414su20

JessicaO This book is going to have your students on their toes wanting to know what happens next! This book would be great to use as a RA. Make the story more interesting by adding fun sound effects and props. UDL principle 2.1 to clarify vocabulary and symbols would align great with this book to prepare students for vocabulary that is unknown in the book. Also, ESOL strategy #10 to teach think, pair and share strategies in cooperative groups. 3y

gpraytor I love this pick and want to pick it up! I really like the principles you picked to use in your lesson! 3y
DrSpalding Scholastic is a high-quality resource. Remember that just because something includes the topic of science does not mean it is science fiction per se. Check your genre FlipBook. 3y

This SF book written by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Dan Santat, won The NY Times 2015 Best Illustration award. It is about a young girls science project going south! She try‘s a toad to fix the problem, but then it becomes the issue! #ucae3414f19

Lrobertson This book would be great for and Interactive RA. Stopping and asking a question along the way. ESOL Strategy 1: Teach questioning for clarification and UDL 9.3: Develop self-assessment and reflection 4y
Tinks This looks like an interesting cover and has me curious enough to look into it. Thank you for sharing. 4y
DrSpalding Here you are eluding to how the lesson and teaching strategy align with your English learner strategy. 4y

OH NO! is written by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Dan Santat. This book is about a girl who build a huge robot for her science fair experiment. The robot then caused so much chaos and was ruining everything in the city. She took a frog, went to her laboratory, made it huge like the robot and told it to destroy the robot. The frog did destroy it, but when it leaped, it started damaging the city also. #ucflae3414f19

alexblanco The genre is science fiction (SF). It won The NY Times Best Illustrated Award in 2015.I loved all of the illustrations in this book. It makes it entertaining to read and look at. I would use to IR teaching strategy because that way, the kids get to look at all the pictures themselves and examine it further. Their isn‘t that many words so it wouldn‘t be difficult for them to read. 4y
alexblanco An EL strategy to use for this would be to give enough wait time for second language learners to respond to questions. By doing this, I would be maximizing their opportunity to answer questions and further comprehend. A UDL strategy I would use is minimize threats and distractions. This book has to do with destroying things so I would want to make sure that the kids didn‘t get in that mindset, start acting crazy, and cause distractions. 4y
alexblanco A standard I would use for this book is https://www.cpalms.org/Public/PreviewStandard/Preview/5728. With this standard I‘d have them describe the connection between the robot and the toad, the events that took place and their thoughts. #ucflae3414f19 4y
DrSpalding Your summary is detailed yet concise and this sounds like a wonderful book to encourage creativity and imagination! 4y

“Oh No ... Oh Man ... I knew it. I never should have built a robot for the science fair.“ Such a cute book! After winning the science fair with the giant robot she has built, a little girl realizes that there is a major problem. Oh No! This is a SF book written by Marc Barnett and illustrated by Dan Santat. This book was awarded the NY Times 2015 best illustrated award. This book would be perfect for IR. #ucflae3414su19

Myiab https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CITUzliNsEA . This website supports the UDL 2.5 (illustrate through multiple media) and EL 17 (provide contextual support through audio, visuals). This book is great for the classroom library. It could be used in the classroom to support ELL students due to the minimum use of words in this book. 4y
DrSpalding Helpful summary and resource. 4y

SF/ NY Times 2015 best illustrated/ IR GR
Illustrated by Dan Santat in the style of a comic book, this book tells the story of a science fair project gone wrong!
2 reasons I love this book: it depicts women in the field of science & the pictures tell most of the story while the words are secondary, thus this is a perfect read for ELL's or struggling readers.
TEDtalk with the author https://tinyurl.com/yyz6u9tc
UDL 7.1
ELL buddy reading

Kayladvazquez I feel this would be a great book to keep in the classroom library. I love how it promotes women in the field of science. The fact that the book is set up like a comic can encourage students to want to read it more. The TEDtalk was super interesting and would be helpful to show students so they can get to know the author. 4y

#lae3414sp19 The book “Oh No! Or How my Science Project Destroyed the World” by written Mac Barnett and illustrated by Dan Santat (SF) is a book about a young girls science project that went wrong. She puts a toad to stop it, but then the toad became a problem. I would read this as an IR, because there are not much words in the book and the illustrations give more information about the story than the words do. (cont. in comments)

sydneydaniels For UDLs I would use 1.1, 7.3, and 1.3. For ESOL strategies, I would
use numbers 39 and 44. For a lesson plan, I would have my students make their own science project that sparks their interest and curiosity.

This is where BAM (Books a Million) was at the mall. Clearly I don‘t go there often enough because it‘s apparently been closed a while! Maybe too much competition from the Barnes and Noble half a mile away. And also they say malls are dying.

DivineDiana I had never even heard of it!!! Unless this is the one that replaced the Chester County Book Store?!? 6y
ValerieAndBooks @DivineDiana BAM is a chain. Maybe that store was underperforming? The book outlet store that is in the same location as CCBC was, is still open! 6y

#UCFLae3414F17 Oh No! Or How My Science Project Destroyed the World is a SF text written by Mac Barnett. This story is about a girl who builds a robot for the science fair. Unfortunately, her robot takes off and begins to destroy the town. She thinks about the things she should and shouldn‘t have installed as she tries to stop the robot.

I would utilize ESOL strategy 44 and have students practice predicting and summarizing the story. The text is

JordanHull simple so they would be able to do so easily. I‘d use UDL 1.1 and use this book for storytelling. Seeing me model and emphasize plot points while following along in the book will aid student‘s comprehension. This books could be used for S, RA, and GR.

JordanHull The link above goes to a lesson where the students build their own robots. I would take the activity a step further and have them make a comic strip about what their robot would do.
