YA Eco Mysteries, Memoirs, Novels & Travel

Environmental Fiction 3-8th grade

Environmental Education Inspires Wonder and Curiosity

The Adventures of The Sizzling Six, Eco Mystery series, I hope to inspire readers around 3rd-8th grade to experience wonder and curiosity about  the natural world. In each mystery kids must solve an eco mystery in order to take action to help save a species. The eco mysteries challenge and empower them to help resolve environmental problems that threaten living things in their own communities—yes, students can and have helped make a difference.

Book set 2

Teachers can encourage students to write their own eco mysteries with my free Teacher Handout, How to Become an Eco Detective: An Interdisciplinary Unit for Writing Across the Curriculum. To launch the Eco Mystery writing project teachers can apply Project Based Leaning (see all my Environment blogs at:
