Part of what Measure AA sponsors are the elementary science labs. Glenshire Elementary's Science Lab benefits from having a class set of The Laws Guide to the Sierra Nevada. Tahoe Lake Elementary would also benefit from a set of these, as I work at both elementary schools, and have used the set of both schools. It would be great to have a set on site so as not to have to move them between schools.
Students have used the Laws guides to practice scientific sketching, study the wildlife and flora of the areas around their school, and to create a booklet about local plants and animals that they can keep. Teachers have used them for classroom projects such as animal reports.
The guides can be used for projects to meet standards at multiple grade levels, and scientific drawing is applicable at all grades.
The intention is to keep 12 of the volumes in the Science Lab, and 6 of the volumes in the school library for checkout by students or by teachers. If a teacher needed more than the 6 volumes, they could borrow additional copies from the Science Lab. I also would purchase one container like the one I keep the GES books in so that they are easily stored and moved to classrooms when desired.
