Summary
"Does your science kit invite hard thinking? Or does it rush you and your students through prescribed activities, robbing children of the opportunity to do what is most essential in science - to revise their thinking, control experiments more rigorously, observe and record more carefully." "The goal of Wendy Saul and Jeanne Reardon's book is not to dispense with kits but to encourage teachers and their students to see kits as just the beginning of real scientific inquiry. The essays in this volume reveal how elementary teachers have turned around their teaching to make themselves and their students producers as well as consumers of scientific knowledge. They demonstrate that when teachers inquire into their own practice, they become better equipped to help children explore and investigate. It is an appreciation and enjoyment of inquiry that will lead these children back to science again and again." "Although there are many classroom suggestions embedded in the essays, Beyond the Science Kit should not be read as a how-to guide. The exciting part about the science that these teachers advocate is that it enables other teachers to make it their own."--Jacket
