How I Use It
This would be a great resource to use as you do an author study on Seymour Simon. It has many resources to supplement his books. It also could be a great resource if you were studying a particular science concept. His blog offers opportunities for your class to interact with him on a science topic. Seymour Simon offers free eBooks for students to read to get interested in science. The opportunities are limitless for this resource and getting students interested in science.
My Take
Seymour Simon's webpage has many different opportunities to offer. It goes beyond the typical author website offering more opportunities to interact with Seymour Simon. I really like the science blog section of his website. There are lots of science based resources you can use to support your classroom. I like there is an option to Skype with him. The for kids sections offers students some fun eBooks to read as well as fun trading cards that supplement his books. I think this is a very kid welcoming website that will continue to spark student's interest in science.
