Here at Nitty Gritty Science, we want to foster the love of reading and improve science literacy. We believe that using novel studies in the science classroom will not only give students exposure to different perspectives but will also help them develop an understanding of how science vocabulary applies to so many events in their lives.
Bees on the Roof Novel Study includes targeted vocabulary that helps students make connections between vocabulary and real life. It encourages students to think before they begin reading, while they’re reading, and after. It meets a variety of learning strategies that engage students and their ability to learn and retain science ideas and concepts. This novel study was created to be used in the secondary science classroom and is perfect for those looking to focus on vocabulary and reading comprehension. It is perfect for the whole class, small groups, or independent study. It’s user-friendly for distance learning and both print and digital versions are available so students can access the digital version from home or school.
Bees on the Roof novel study is based on the young reader’s edition.
The Bees On The Roof novel study follows the story of Sam, who needs to find a seventh-grade science fair project and a way to save the restaurant where his father works. When he enrolls three friends in an effort to raise bees on a hotel roof in New York City, the complications multiply. Bee sting allergies, a great bee die-off, a rival team’s cheating, a mysteriously reclusive science teacher, and Sam’s romantic feelings for a classmate make the bee project anything but simple. This story includes lots of facts about bees and Colony Collapse Disorder.
