We are proud to present our new book.
Defenders of the Future—Tackle Today’s Water Troubles. A Story with Lessons, Activities, and Resources for Grades 3+ / written by Dawn Pape, illustrated by Lisa Sacchi.
Since this story is filled with dense content and big issues, the author suggests following the book’s layout and reading only a few pages of the story at a time followed by a corresponding activity delineated by dotted borders to help the students absorb the information before moving on to the next “mission.”
This book doesn’t dance around real-world water challenges, but faces them head on. Combining science and social studies, the defenders of the future characters interact with the talking water cycle character. The story reveals how, even though humans are negatively impacting the water cycle, regular people (like your students!) can use their super strengths to turn these challenges around.
