Starting with Science: Strategies for Introducing Young Children to Inquiry
160 pages • 7½ x 9¼
Discover how to overcome all the impediments and apprehensions related to teaching science to young children, and learn to view science and inquiry as a joint exploration to take with your students as they ask questions about the world around them. This straightforward book describes how to design investigations where children interact with the real world, ask questions, develop and test theories, look for evidence, share ideas, find connections, and ask more questions. Including inquiry-based science in the classroom provides children with a knowledge base, a skill set for problem solving, and an attitude toward learning that they will carry with them throughout their school career and beyond.
