Marie Curie

By Robin McKown
Level 8

Born in Poland while it was under oppressive Russian rule, Marie Curie overcame incredible obstacles to become the first person to win the Nobel Prize twice. However, there was far more to her great mind than the work she did with radium and radioactivity. Marie Curie is an enlightening look into the life of one of history’s most prominent and extraordinary scientists.

This book is suggested to accompany our Chemistry Science unit as extra reading for students in Grades 7–8.
