I had someone ask for some recommendations of books that have science content within them and as well as books with math content. These requests has made me realize that there may be other teachers out there that may want some of these same recommendations. This list contains books I recommended to an 8th grade science teacher and mostly has books that are middle school and high school level. Also, many of these books are one of a series, so their sequels or companions would have science content as well. Bradley says: September 8, at AM Awesome list! I have added more novels to the list since the original post thanks to some helpful friends and more reading.

At first, novels and science books might seem to have little in common. After all, novels are meant to entertain, while science books emphasize facts. However, there are a fair number of excellent science-themed novels that can provide a good bridge between these two genres. Listed below are some recent novels that highlight various aspects of science. Although a few titles contain elements of fantasy, the actual science presented is at least as important as the magical components. Titles in this bibliography are listed by broad themes and should prove useful for classes looking to bring a new dimension to science units, or for hardcore science buffs facing a fiction reading assignment.

I know that our ELA teacher requires students to complete a certain number of hours for outside reading, and figured I could tag team with him. I would add the titles so that at each grade would have 1 book per semester that we could focus on for science analysis and discussion. What are some of your favorite science-focused books for middle school students? Please share your comments with us. Get more involved with NSTA!
