Designed to fit science into your schedule, complete lessons explicitly teach the process skills of inquiry. Photo-illustrated instructions for each hands-on activity provide an invaluable resource for teachers at any experience level with science.
Lessons move from building background knowledge to hands-on inquiry to assessment. Extension activities apply the process skills to reading, math, social studies and art. Content aligns with NSES. Meeting Individual Needs section in each lesson offers ideas for instructional accommodations. Great for building the deeper level of understanding that applies both to standardized science tests and everyday life.
Each teacher handbook contains 36 lessons. Rubrics, assessment, answer keys and blackline masters available online. Tabbed, spiral-bound books with 152 pages measure 9"L x 11"H each. Grades 4-5+.
