Science Magazines and Books

Click - a wonderful science magazine for younger elementary ages, published by the Cobblestone Publishing group in conjunction with the Smithsonian.

Ask - a favorite science discovery magazine for older elementary to middle school students. Published by the Cobblestone group in conjunction with the Smithsonian, it covers topics in-depth and in an engaging way.

Muse - another favorite science discovery magazine for middle- to high-school students. Published by the Cobblestone group in conjunction with the Smithsonian, it covers topics in-depth and in an engaging way.

Odyssey - a wonderful science magazine for middle- to high-school students. Each issue centers around a specific theme.

(The magazines above are all favorites around our house, and we've subscribed to them for years. We've found that the age guidelines are a little off. Click is enjoyed by older children through ages 8 and 9, and Ask is enjoyed by children around ages 9 and up. Muse and Odyssey is better appreciated by teens.)

ChemMatters - a chemistry magazine published by the American Chemical Society. Each issue brings chemistry to a more accessible level for high school students by including articles that are relevant to their lives.

Your Big Backyard - a nature and wildlife magazine for ages 3-7 published by National Wildlife Federation.

Ranger Rick - a nature and wildlife magazine for ages 8 and up published by National Wildlife Federation.
