Visiting Author: David Schwartz

SIS is lucky enough to have David Schwartz visiting us for a couple of days to share his joy of reading and writing, mixed with math and science. Below are some pictures of his visit with 4th and 5th grade this morning. He shared with us a lot of the inspirations that he got for the stories he’s written. Such as the time when he was a kid watching frogs hop, and he started to wonder how far frogs can jump compared to the size of their body. After doing some hands on investigation, he found that frogs jump about 20 times longer than their body, and that if he could jump as far as a frog, he would jump 90 feet.
