For more than 15 years, OLogy has been recognized as a premier site for science learning by supporting children’s questions about the natural world. Now teachers can use OLogy to support reading comprehension in their classroom. Through a partnership with ReadWorks, the American Museum of Natural History in New York City has paired dozens of OLogy articles with vocabulary lessons and formative assessments. These units cover life, earth, and physical science content and are available for students in elementary through high school. Students can read articles such as “Creatures of the Reef” (third grade); “Wonderful World of Wasps” (fifth grade); “Paleontology: The Big Dig” (seventh grade); and “Unearthing Pterosaurs” (eleventh and twelfth grades). Teachers can explore these and other articles on the ReadWorks website.
