Last week, Glenmont Elementary School students were treated to a special event with science author and educator, Dr. Jodi Wheeler-Toppen. Dr. Wheeler-Toppen delivered two presentations, one for kindergarten through second-grade students and the other for third through fifth-grade students.

For the younger 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.

For the older students, Dr. Wheeler-Toppen presented “Purr-fect Research is so Dog-gone Fun!” This presentation highlighted 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 and improve their writing skills.

The success of this 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 unique opportunity to learn from a science expert and gain valuable insights into writing and research.
