Friday, October 2, 2009 Eggs-periments Videoconference with Where Do Chicks Come From? author Amy Sklansky
Eggs-periments Videoconference with New Links to New Learning Author Visit Amy E. Sklansky
Amy E. Sklansky has written five picture books including Where Do Chicks Come From? This book, part of the well-respected Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science series, explains what happens inside an egg from fertilization through hatching. Amy incorporates terms from the scientific method, such as hypothesis, prediction, experiment, and data.
“Neither flowery nor clinical, Sklansky’s straightforward presentation hits just the right note for young children, who will find the details of life inside the egg fascinating.” – Booklist
Using visuals in a highly interactive videoconference session, Amy also outlines various stages of writing the book — research, revisions, artist’s sketches, etc. Student questions are encouraged! The 45-minute program for K-2, but can be geared toward an older audience… please limit the number of participating students to no more than 30 children.
For first and second grade classes, Amy will also lead several hands-on eggs-periments while teachers do the same in their own classrooms with their own eggs.
