Dr. Jodi Wheeler-Toppen, a science author and educator, visited Glenmont Elementary School last week to share her knowledge with students through two presentations tailored to different grade levels. For kindergarten through second-grade students, she presented “How a Worm Wiggled into a Book,” focusing 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 the 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 made possible by the efforts of Dr. Jodi Wheeler-Toppen, Glenmont Library Media Specialist Angela Datri, and the Glenmont PTA. The students were grateful for this special opportunity to learn from a science expert and gain valuable insights into the world of writing and research.
