Teaching Science to Children: An Inquiry Approach
This is a comprehensive, easy-to-use text containing more than 300 science teaching activities, 30 of which are new to this edition. The book’s focus on the inquiry approach places value on the student’s thinking and doing science, and ties the text to the inquiry-oriented National Science Education Standards for science teaching issued by the National Research Council. Each of the inquiry activities contains combined discussions of methods and content. The text helps students overcome science anxiety and shows them how easy it is to teach science using a simple, consistent three-step approach to each of the science activities (set induction, investigation, and resolution). All activities use simple, easy-to-find materials. Over 250 pieces of line art clearly illustrate the teaching activities.

One of the better books written about classroom science instruction. Actual examples and ideas are presented rather than speaking in abstract terms. Read full review
