Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears: Issue 5: Water, Ice, and Snow
A new issue of the Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears magazine is ready to view! Issue Five, Water, Ice, and Snow, uses the polar regions to better understand the water cycle as well as states and changes of matter. As always, the issue includes:
- Science and Literacy content knowledge
- Misconceptions and assessment tools
- Expository articles and differentiated text for use with students
- A virtual bookshelf of children’s literature
- Polar research
Of course that’s not all - and we hope you’ll explore the issue in its entirety! But in addition to our wonderful content, we have new exciting features to help you make the most of Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears!
A custom search feature allows you to enter keywords and search just the magazine and blog.
An Issue Archive allows you to view and access all past issues of the magazine.
A Browse by Column feature allows you to view the same column across all magazine issues. For example, you could view all of the Virtual Bookshelves at once - saving you the time and trouble of navigating between individual issues.
Finally, we need your help! We are asking visitors to take two short online surveys. One, accessible from the magazine home page, asks questions about your purpose in visiting the magazine and your use of various web tools. At the end of this survey, you can enter a monthly drawing for a $50 Amazon gift certificate!
The second survey is designed to provide feedback on our most popular article, Science and Literacy Lessons and Activities. After reading the article, click on the link (at the top and bottom of the article) to take the short (8 question) survey.
We hope you’ll enjoy this latest issue of Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears!
