 This book is about the intersection of storytelling and science. Recognizing that humans are hard-wired for narrative, this collection of new essays integrates the two in a special way to teach science in the K–6 classroom. As science education changes its focus to concepts that bridge various disciplines, along with science and engineering practices, storytelling offers opportunities to enhance the science classroom. Lesson plans are provided, each presenting a story, its alignment with science (Next Generation Science Standards), language arts (Common Core State Standards) and theater arts standards (National Core Arts Standards). Instructional plans include a rationale, preparation, activities and assessment.

Gazing up at the heavens from our backyards or a nearby field, most of us see an undifferentiated mess of stars—if, that is, we can see anything at all through the glow of light pollution. Today’s casual observer knows far less about the sky than did our ancestors, who depended on the sun and the moon to tell them the time and on the stars to guide them through the seas. Nowadays, we don’t need the sky, which is good, because we’ve made it far less accessible, hiding it behind the skyscrapers and the excessive artificial light of our cities. How We See the Sky gives us back our knowledge of the sky, offering a fascinating overview of what can be seen there without the aid of a telescope. Thomas Hockey begins by scanning the horizon, explaining how the visible universe rotates through this horizon as night turns to day and season to season. Subsequent chapters explore the sun’s and moon’s respective motions through the celestial globe, as well as the appearance of solstices, eclipses, and planets, and how these are accounted for in different kinds of calendars. In every chapter, Hockey introduces the common vocabulary of today’s astronomers, uses examples past and present to explain them, and provides conceptual tools to help newcomers understand the topics he discusses. Packed with illustrations and enlivened by historical anecdotes and literary references, How We See the Sky reacquaints us with the wonders to be found in our own backyards.

Im Sternenlicht liegt natürlich Magie. Das ist allgemein bekannt. Aber Mondlicht: Das ist eine ganz andere Geschichte. Mondlicht ist pure Magie. Das weiß jeder. Diese Geschichte erzählt von einer Hexe, von der alle glauben, sie sei böse, einem kleinen Mädchen, das die Hexe bezaubert, einem sechsarmigen Sumpfmonster, das Gedichte liebt, von einem wahrhaft winzigen Drachen und einem jungen Mann, der sich aufmacht, die Hexe zu töten. Jedes Jahr lassen die Bürger des Protektorats ihr jüngstes Kind im Wald zurück – als Opfergabe zum Schutz vor der bösen Hexe. Jedes Jahr rettet die Hexe Xan die ausgesetzten Kinder, denn sie ist gar nicht böse. Dieses Jahr jedoch ist alles anders. Xan gibt dem ausgesetzten kleinen Mädchen aus Versehen Mondlicht zu trinken. Doch Mondlicht ist pure Magie! Und so wächst in dem Kind, genannt Luna, große Macht heran ... Wird sie diese Macht für das Gute einsetzen und die Stadt, die sie einst opferte, von ihrem grausamen Schicksal befreien? »So mitreißend und vielschichtig wie die Klassiker ›Peter Pan‹ und ›Der Zauberer von Oz‹.« New York Times
