Visit from Science Author and Educator at Glenmont

This week, students at Glenmont Elementary School had the privilege of hearing from science author and educator, Dr. Jodi Wheeler-Toppen. She delivered two engaging presentations that were tailored to different grade levels. For kindergarten through second-grade students, she presented “How a Worm Wiggled into a Book,” which focused on earthworm anatomy and the importance of revision in writing. The students had the chance to interact with live worms and ask investigative questions to deepen their understanding of earthworm science.

Meanwhile, 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 the students to use a research cycle strategy to effectively gather information.

The event was made possible by the hard work 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.
