Visit from Science Author and Educator at Glenmont

Last week, Glenmont Elementary School welcomed science author and educator, Dr. Jodi Wheeler-Toppen. She delivered two presentations, one for kindergarten through second-grade students and another for third through fifth-grade students. For the younger children, she presented “How a Worm Wiggled into a Book,” which focused on worm anatomy and the importance of revision in writing. The students were able to interact with live worms and ask investigative questions to deepen their understanding of earthworm science.

For the older students, Dr. Wheeler-Toppen presented “Purr-fect Research is so Dog-gone Fun!” highlighting the research process involved in nonfiction writing. Using examples from her book, Dog and Cat Science Unleashed!, she encouraged students to use a research cycle strategy to effectively gather information.

The event was made possible by the efforts of Dr. Jodi Wheeler-Toppen, Glenmont Library Media Specialist Angela Datri, and the Glenmont PTA. The students were grateful for this special opportunity to learn from a science expert and gain valuable insights into the world of writing and research.
