Book review: How Does A Battery Work?
Battery power, where does it come from? Your students can explore this colorful book to find the answers. Give this book to students and watch the charge they will receive as they learn how a battery works.
Young readers want their explanations to be quick and easy. This book covers the topic in that manner and so much more. Divided into nine standalone chapters, from battery workings to recycling, this informational text is delivered in a way that supports the Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core.
This book can be used for general knowledge on batteries but also in teaching second and third graders research. Given a topic on chemical energy or electrolytes for example, students could use the index and glossary as well as the for more information section that cites other books and websites. Another plus for this book is as each new word is introduced in the text, it is bolded to signal the reader that word is in the glossary. The general format and color of this book invites students to read it all, focus on the boxed Power Facts, or glean information from the vivid pictures that support the text.
