Local Science Author Visits Haggerty Library

sara levine visitSara Levine has worn many hats in her life. She has been a veterinarian, a college professor and now, she is an award winning children’s book author. The first graders were able to meet her and to learn about how our bones are like and unlike other animals’ bones. Her books and teaching are structured around questions. For example, “What would you be if your finger bones reached your feet?” Students were excited to wiggle their phalanges in the air to answer Sara’s questions. Students also had time to do a fun and challenging activity of piecing together a human skeleton. Sara brought many animal skulls and other large and small animal bones for students to explore. This was a great way to continue the nonfiction work the first graders recently did with Steve Jenkins books. Thank you, Friends of Haggerty!
