    Nonfiction:
    Packing for Mars by Mary Roach
    The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks
    The Wave : In Pursuit of the Rogues, Freaks and Giants of the Ocean by
    Susan Casey
    The Sixth Extinction by Elizabeth Kolbert
    Invisible Allies : Microbes that Shape Our Lives by Jeanette Farrell
    Stuff Matters : Exploring the Marvelous Materials that Shape our Manmade
    World by Mark Miodownik
    Black Gold : The Story of Oil in Our Lives by Albert Marrin
    The last 3 above probably are the easiest to read. My son and his friends
    loved "The Wave" when they were juniors in high school, but it is fairly
    high level. The Sixth Extinction might be a little hard to get through too.
    Several of our science teachers had really good results using the Immortal
    Life of Henrietta Lacks with our students.
    Here's the science-themed book list that we've compiled - some non-fiction
    and some fiction. Some of these titles are older and I'm not sure if
    they're all still in print.

    The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus by Jen Bryant and Illustrated by
    Melissa Sweet
    Grandfather Gandhi by Arun Gandhi and Bethany Hegedus
    If you could read a chapter book or novel I would highly recommend Ghetto
    cowboy by Neri, Greg. Even a few selected chapters would be great for this
    assignment. Twelve-year-old Cole's behavior causes his mother to drive him
    from Detroit to Philadelphia to live with a father he has never known, but
    who soon has Cole involved with a group of African-American "cowboys" who
    rescue horses and use them to steer youths away from drugs and gangs. The
    first chapter or so the mom drives all night, dumps the kid on the door
    step of his father with all of his belongings in garbage bags. They don't
    even know each other. She pulls away from the curb in a fast hurry, I think
    so she won't change her mind, and hits a huge white horse. Very powerful
    story as are all of the biographies listed above.
    How about The Great Fuzz Frenzy by Janet Stevens? Peer pressure, following
    blindly, taking from others are all in this picture book. Plus it a super
    fun read aloud and great pictures so it should hold their attention.
