Living on Mars is such a drag! That's where Miri lives with her exobiologist parents who were transferred to the red planet for work. One day while doing her chores with her robotic dog Ruff, she makes a startling discovery that will make her re-evaluate whether living on Mars is so bad, after all! With full-color illustrations and a short chapter format, this 32-page sci-fi book will capture the interest of both reluctant and avid readers who enjoy science fiction stories with a female protagonist. The hi-lo text is perfect for students who need high-interest, low-readability books.
"Teacher Created Materials develops innovative and imaginative materials and services for students, worldwide. Everything we do is created by teachers, for teachers and students, to make teaching more effective and learning more fun.
Once upon a time in 1977...Rachelle Cracchiolo started Teacher Created Materials with a friend and fellow teacher. Both were eager to share their ideas and passion for education with other classroom leaders. What began as a hobby, selling lesson plans to local stores, became a part-time job after a full day of teaching, and eventually blossomed into a nonstop opportunity to develop and grow Teacher Created Materials as a full-service company, and a welcome and familiar name in every classroom. The story continued in 2004 with the launch of Shell Education and the introduction of professional resources and classroom application books designed to support Teacher Created Materials curriculum resources. Today, Teacher Created Materials is one of the most recognized names in educational publishing around the world...and the story continues educationally ever after."
