My  books, nonfiction or not, are meant to be read first of all as stories, not as textbook-like sources of information. But they can also help readers learn about research methods, critical thinking skills, and how science really works.

Readers of  Isaac the Alchemist: Secrets of Isaac Newton, Reveal’d  can check out “The Young Alchemist’s Guide to Magick and Science.”

You can find the three lessons at these links.

Lesson One

Lesson Two

Lesson Three

******IN ADDITION*******

Here are a few more ideas for classroom activities (not, as yet, developed into online presentations, alas.)  These are designed to go along with  Wild Boy: The Real Life of the Savage of Aveyron,  and The Fairy Ring, Or Elsie and Frances Fool the World.

Thanks so much for your work with kids, reading, science, and making the world a better place!
