    This is a great science graphic novel for grades 3rd to 6th.In this book some campers are told about a fog zombie that walks by the beach at night. When they receive some letters with riddles and clues they know that there must be something more to this zombie and have to use their knowledge of matter to solve the mystery. Some activities to go with this book: Could be used with a science lesson on matter 1) Do you think Loraine should have made the riddles that sent the kids on this zombie hunt?

Some activities to go with this book: Could be used with a science lesson on matter 1) Do you think Loraine should have made the riddles that sent the kids on this zombie hunt? Explain why or why not. 2)Have the students try to solve the riddle "is the Dakota Zombie giving you the chills? The solid truth will soon flow your way" before they do in the book. 3)Compare and contrast the egg and the match in cup experiments. 4)Hands on activity: have the students pair up and try the 2 cups of chocolate chips and sugar. By having them pour one cup of sugar and one cup of chocolate chips then put them together in different ways. Sugar first then chocolate chips, then the other way and have them record results and explain what is happening. 5)Do a class experiment called cloud in a jar(in back of book). Have the teacher do the experiment and have the students watch and then write down what happened and then explain why. Beauregard, L., & Helmer, D. (2012).

    Camp Dakota is often bathed in fog, late at night and early in the morning, and some of the campers spread the rumor that there is a Fog Zombie prowling the premises, moving through the area and moaning as it searches for brains. Naturally, they dismiss the rumors, but when they find clues that seem to point them to the zombie's lair, they find more--or less--than they bargained for. The book is filled with science experiments that middle graders will enjoy conducting.

The book is filled with science experiments that middle graders will enjoy conducting. This is more of a series of science lessons hidden inside a thin story since readers hardly get to know the characters, but still, it will find an audience, if only for those nifty experiments that require items available in every household.

    Tweens at Camp Dakota fear the zombie that roams throughout the camp when it is foggy. And, it is foggy quite often. Using scientific sleuthing skills, the children soon discover the source of the heavy fog and find the zombie. This book is filled with fascinating scientific facts that will educate children as they are entertained by the engrossing mystery of the zombie.

    Compared to some educational graphic novels (the combination is a risky path)this series does a good job combining a fairly plausible story with some education. Could be a good draw for very reluctant students.

    A loose plot to deliver science facts. Drives home the learning pretty hard. Copy courtesy Netgalley

    1/21/2019 ~ This graphic novel series set at a summer camp is packed with information about science topics (#1 focuses on matter). There are 6 camper characters with 2 counselors. One pair of twins is Hispanic, two brothers are Black, and the other two campers and both counselors are White. I appreciate the visual diversity and the scientific information.

I appreciate the visual diversity and the scientific information. However, I felt that the characterization was very thin and the plot somewhat contrived. The fact that this is a graphic novel (loosely speaking, since it's only 46 pages long), though, trumps all. Students will EAT. IT. UP. I became aware of this series, because a number of my students found an online version and started asking for them in our elementary school library. Fortunately, I was able to find print copies at my public library so I could preview them.

    Good graphic novel that gives an introduction about the three types of matter: gas, liquid, and solid. A few fun experiments are included, and the characters are nice, although I didn't like how Angie was scared more than the boys, and seemed to defer to her brother who is neither older nor more mature. Just felt kinda sexist. Other than that, good science story! Recommend to older kids who liked Magic School Bus. Tone/aesthetic is similar to Telgemeier.

    Looking for entertaining, informative science lead books with brown skinned children in it for my brown skinned tinkering inventor & our homeschooling journey. It has solid content, simple and engaging dialogue and relatable characters. My son and I are talking about how we touch a cloud when we walk through fog.

    Was looking for a quick entertaining read. Got that and more. This is a book that while made for younger readers is still enjoyable for an adult. I think both boys and girls would enjoy this. It also make learning about science a lot more interesting. If you want to brush up your basics or help a kid get why science can be fun this is the book for you.

    Very nice! Despite the heavy educational cartoon vibes, I enjoyed the science experiments and simple explanations. The art was cute as well.

    Good book for elementary aged kids. Teaches science without feeling educational.

    Actually a lot of fun. Kiddo enjoyed the clues in the story (thrilled to have her guess about the periodic table proven correct). She's interested in the experiments in the back, so we'll hang on to this longer to do those. Actually a lot of fun.

    In Search of the Fog Zombie is the first book in the Science Camp Mysteries from Graphic Universe. The topic covered in this issue is matter.

The topic covered in this issue is matter. The book starts with a brief definition of what is matter then jumps in with the Rayez siblings heading to camp. The story does get stilted now and again with a bubble of information but makes the book a wonderful teaching tool. The Rayez siblings meet up with other children at the camp and soon they are on a scavenger hunt, following clues to uncover exactly what makes the sounds at night. Rumor around the camp is that a fog zombie wanders the grounds looking for stray campers. The story is not frightening but will appeal to the darker side of story interests. This is a great way to introduce science topics to grade school aged children. The story was entertaining. The graphics drawn in a very cartoon style with rich colors. The story is a little science heavy but interesting. There are a few lessons in the story line but two additional experiments are included at the end. This book reminds me of a PBS show which is not a bad thing. I liked the characters and the story. I can’t wait to try some of the experiments with my son. I hope I get the opportunity to read more of the series.

    A solid example of a "Fact-ion" book, this one set up as a graphic novel. Kids at a summer camp hear mysterious zombie noises in the fog. They set out to find the cause of the noises, and learn a bit about chemistry (mostly the states of matter) along the way. The kids do some experiments, and there are blurbs about the science concepts build into the story. The back includes a glossary and a recap of the facts. As a bit of "wonderful" added in, the main characters are a mixed bag of students. Th A solid example of a "Fact-ion" book, this one set up as a graphic novel.

The book also indicates that there are free science online resources. While the story line isn't overly deep, and the science information and experiments sometimes feel a little forced, this is a great introduction to the scientific concepts that is presented in a way that will help kids learn and remember them. I plan to find the others in the series!

    In Search of the Fog Zombie A Mystery about Matter by Lynda Beauregard Intermediate Book The story plot was easy to follow. It is about a boy and a girl who go away to camp. Once at camp, they learn about a Fog Zombie mystery. They find clues they have to answer to find the next clue. They work really hard to find the mystery. They explain many science concepts throughout the book. The panels are not too busy. The students would be able to determine their focus and understand the story.

This is a great book to introduce matter in science. It also has easy experiments they can do in class or at home. Reluctant readers who love science would really like to read this book. This could be used in 3rd to 6th grade. The added science experiments were one of the many positive attributes of this book. It was easy to read. The plot was easy to follow. I loved the extra science facts at the bottom of the pages. I thought the story line was good.

    The first of The Summer Camp Science Mysteries, this is a fun graphic story in which kids at summer camp follow scientific clues to find the Fog Zombie. Fun, simple science ideas and experiments (to be done with adult supervision) throughout the story.

    A fun approach for kids to learn about matter. Best of all, written by one of our very own Southfield parents.
