What’s Different … What’s the Same?
by Jamie Moore Chapel and Nancy Chapel Eberhardt
Vivid and engaging photographs explore the concepts of same and different. Youngsters are invited to use what they know about color, texture, shape and weight to observe how objects change. An answer key presents the surprise discovery that all pairs of objects weigh the same, providing a unique introduction to conservation of mass.
Take a look at the pairs of objects.
What’s the same?
Use what you know about color, texture, shape, and weight to observe how the objects change. See if you can guess how all of the object pairs are the same. You may be surprised!
Compare and Contrast with a Friend!—Top notch language and learning resource! As a former teacher, I value the objectives and the visual appeal of WHAT’S DIFFERENT…WHAT’S THE SAME? I suggest letting children share the book and engage in an interesting discussion about each pair of items. Or, parent and child could engage in the discussion together (so important for language development). For example, two readers could discuss how the three raw eggs and the three scrambled eggs (as pictured) are similar and different in terms of color, shape, texture, weight, and more (taste, smell, etc.). Spending only 5-10 minutes, readers could complete one comparison a week, and let the learning last all semester.
Great Teaching Tool!—I actually used this fabulous book with a middle school student to teach the idea of cause and effect. She loved it. The pictures and concrete examples helped her understand the concept of cause and effect as it relates to more abstract notions. Perfect teaching tool—thanks to the authors for writing it.
Fun, interactive science for young minds—I bought this book to share with my grandchildren(4 and 6 yrs. old). It presents the concept of matter in a engaging and interactive way. The photographs were beautiful, and each page gave us something interesting to discuss. Since the authors used many simple household items (clay, popcorn, cookies), we extended the book with some fun and tasty experimenting of our own. Great book for language development!—At first glance, this is a cute book with great photography. Teachers and speech paths will quickly realize that is also promotes vocabulary development, correct sentence usage, and verbal sequencing. I’m hopeful that Chapel and Eberhardt will team up to create more books like this one.
Brilliant idea for a everyday topic—First of all, the photography in the book is great and it really is a great way for kids to stop and think about the world around them. My girls loved the book and they asked many questions about things around the house as it related to the book. Every kid I know will be getting this book for Christmas.
What’s Different…What’s the Same?—I bought this for my 5 year old grandaughter. She love it and we are giving one to her kindergarten class. The pictures are so very great and so colorful. We really enjoyed it.
