What Does a Level Do?
Written by Robin Nelson
This is such a simply written book. While second graders will read it for sure, first grade readers and kindergarteners will also enjoy the vivid photographs, and in the process learn what a level is and what it does.
A level is a tool. Through photos, the book shows us that a level can be used both across and up-and-down to make sure a surface is straight. We see a photo of a builder with a level, and are asked what we could use it for. That is a great jumping off point for a classroom discussion. Many fun activities can be built around a level — from putting up planks as shelves to measuring the classroom walls to make sure they are straight!
Safety instructions to set an adult’s mind at ease, a glossary to explain the more difficult words, and an index to help teach another useful skill to learn – what more could a reader ask for?
What Does a Level Do?, part of the Lerner First Step Nonfiction series, would be a valuable addition to any elementary reading list.
