Connect your students to science projects that are intriguing and fun! Let Randi Stone and her award-winning teachers demonstrate tried-and-true best practices for teaching science and raising student achievement in diverse elementary, middle, and high school classrooms.
A Creative Approach to Teaching Science is filled with exciting and innovative ways to teach and meet the objectives for primary physics, chemistry and biology from Years 1-6. Each idea has been tried and tested, used in the classroom with children of the relevant age range, and all are deep rooted in practical enquiry with clear links to the statutory requirements for primary science.
The science in this book is not for the children, but for the adults who have to explain it. Starting with a whirlwind tour of the great milestones of modern science, Getting Science goes on to take each of the main curriculum topics and give it a new twist.
This book includes an edited collection of papers containing illustrations of teaching approaches and of students' learning acquisitions in the science teaching laboratory, presentation of new evaluation tools, theoretical frames and positions concerning laboratory work.
