Last week, Glenmont Elementary School students were treated to a special presentation by science author and educator, Dr. Jodi Wheeler-Toppen. The event was organized by the school’s library media specialist, Angela Datri, and the PTA.

Dr. Wheeler-Toppen delivered two presentations tailored to different grade levels. For kindergarten through second-grade students, 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 increase their knowledge of earthworm science.

For third through fifth-grade 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 well received by the students who expressed gratitude for this special opportunity to learn from a science expert and gain valuable insights into the world of writing and research.
