Award Winning Books!

Discovery can be a great cross-curricular tool.  Use subject area videos to coordinate with award winning literature for across the curriculum learning.

First, some sites for finding award winning titles:  

Second, search Discovery for resources that coordinate with subjects.  Some examples from this year’s Bluebonnet Nominees (http://www.txla.org/TBA-nominees)

  •  Home of the Brave –use the video American Heritage: Immigration to the United States (social studies)
  • The Uglified Duckling: a Maynard Moose Tale — use calendar link for Hans Christian Anderson’s birthday (language arts: reading, biography)
  • Dying to Meet You: 43 Cememtary Road — build a writing prompt with a (humorously) scary picture and beginning (language arts: writing)
  • For Surfer of the Century: the life of Duke Kahanamoku– use The Endless Voyage: Surf’s Up (science)

Third, save them to My Content and share with school or district so all can make the connection!

What literature-Discovery Education connections can you come up with?
