If you live in a big city, you have probably seen more then one skyscraper. Seeing this is only partially as impressive as knowing how to build a skyscraper.
Skyscrapers: Investigate Feats of Engineering Book Review
Skyscrapers: Investigate Feats of Engineering is a book helping educate children about engineering. The book starts off with a brief history about buildings. From the first ones build until where they are in the present. After the history, the book is broken down into smaller chapters that incorporate STEM concepts. The book is written in more of a textbook format with words banks and critical thinking along the way.
My all-time favorite part was the activities found while reading Skyscrapers: Investigate Feats of Engineering. The children were not just learning, but they had the opportunity to experience first hand what they were learning.
Note: This book does not contain any colors. All of the illustrations and graphics are in black and white.
After your child reads through Skyscrapers: Investigate Feats of Engineering and completes all of the STEM activities, encourage them to come up with a project on their own. They can present it to the class and teach them the concepts they combined. A great way to practice STEM and show what they have learned.
My Overall Opinion
I loved reading through Skyscrapers: Investigate Feats of Engineering. I found this to be one of the more interactive books I have seen. This book offers children not only a way to broaden their knowledge, but it incorporates lots of STEM skills. I love books that not only teach, but allow children to see what they have learned. This book is one of those that will not allow children to forget what they have learned.
