How cool that such an in depth inquiry experiment can come from a children's book! It is a great way to integrate science and literature and is an interesting experiment that student's will likely be very engaged in. I think the article did a good job in describing the steps to the experiment and gave helpful teaching tips on how you could replicate it in your own classroom.

This article gives an activity for students in highschool studying genes and how to look for genes that give an individual certain diseases and disorders. I remember doing activities similar to this when I was in highschool so reading and overlooking this activity was helpful to me and my remembering and understanding of the topic. Although I don’t plan to teach highschool it is an important topic to know and this article was a good refresher for me.

The article reiterated the rock cycle and it’s different parts. It also gave a lesson plan idea involving candy chips to make it more applicable to their students lives. I think this way makes it more real for the students and would be worth looking into and using in my own classroom.
