Level 5 - Merging Science and Literature
Posted 05/16/2017 04:03PM

What makes us say, “Awww” when we see cute animals and babies? It turns out we don’t learn this at school, it’s in our genes! This interesting fact is only one of many that the Level 5 students learned from their visit with author Stuart Gibbs.

Stuart Gibbs, author of Belly Up, Spy School, Spy Camp, and The Last Musketeer book series, spoke to Level 5 about how his experiences in zoos and studying wildlife inspired some of his books. His love of combining science and literature prompted intriguing discussion and questions, particularly around the topic of preventing the illegal hunting of endangered animals.

Students were engaged and motivated by Mr. Gibbs’ personal stories, knowledge of wildlife biology, and gallery of fascinating creatures!
