Nonfiction Monday is hosted today by NC Teacher Stuff.
For Nonfiction Monday -- "Exploring the International Space Station" by Laura Hamilton Waxman.
Waxman provides readers with a look at the development and construction of the ISS and its international crew of astronauts, daily life, science experiments and the future plans for this orbiting home/laboratory. A glossary, About the ISS and Index conclude the book. Photographs and artist renderings accompany a simple informative text that is not overwhelmed with technical jargon making this an interesting introduction to the subject for students in grades 3-6.
