The Tiny Seed by Eric Carle is a RF book that tells the story of the life cycle of a flower but from the seeds perspective. The beautiful illustrations brings the seed story to life.This is a great RA for a science lesson about flowers and why they are important to nature. #ucflae3414su20

dbears1 UDL- Activate and supply background knowledge (3.1) and guide information processing and visualization (3.3) ESOL Strategy- Teach to two objectives, language and content. Student will enjoy this activity along with the book ! https://theeducatorsspinonit.com/the-tiny-seed-activities-vbc-summer-camp/ 4y
gpraytor I love Eric Carle! This book would be so good as an introduction to a science lesson! 4y
JoslynB Love the inclusion of science. I think a great activity to include alongside the one you mentioned is to start a garden or maybe try to plant some seed to make text-to-world connections. 4y
DrSpalding Detailed post with all required elements. Integrating quality children‘s literature into the content areas is considered best practice! Use these books. 4y

The Tiny Seed is a RF picture book written and illustrated by Eric Carle and would be great book used as a S before a science lesson on plants. It is the story of the long and torturous journey of a small seed. #UCFLAE3414SU20

Ameyer32 This book could be paired with UDL 1.3, offer alternatives for visual information, by making props for story telling. I would also use ESOL strategy 4 by linking lesson to prior knowledge the student has about plants.
There are great resources at http://www.carolhurst.com/titles/tinyseed.html for fun activities and extensions for the book.

Emma_Barcena I‘ve never heard of this book before, but I think you are right in saying this would be great for incorporating literature in a science lesson! Looks like a great picture book! 4y
nquintus The resources and extension activities that you found for this book are excellent! Every teacher K-2 could use these to integrate lessons. Excellent choice! 4y
DrSpalding These books are easily integrated into other subject areas. This one works nicely with science. Storytelling is an excellent teaching strategy along with read aloud. 4y

This book is about a seed becoming a flower. The pictures do a good job of accurately showing this following the story. The pictures are authentic, unique, and detailed.

I would use this book in my future classroom because the images are extremely colorful and students already have seen flowers before so they can relate to their own personal experiences.

This book is about a seed growing into a flower. It is a picture book because the content is appropriate for the age group. Students can learn how a seed becomes a flower through bright and colorful illustrations.

This science fiction book by Eric Carle is fantastic for all elementary school students to learn about the journey of a seed growing into a plant. This would be a great book for independent reading or even guided reading to monitor students‘ comprehension (EL 6). UDL 6.4 enhances capacity for monitoring progress throughout the story. #UCFLAE3414SuB18

prissy.mooney www.carolhurst.com/titles/tinyseed.html has awesome resources to use within the parameters of the book. From math, to language arts, to science, there are activities that can be used with any age group to get the class started. The site also has books related to this one if the students wanted to learn more information 6y
DrSpalding Just because the topic is science related does not mean a book is classified as science fiction. This would however be a wonderful book to use prior to a lesson about plants. 6y
