A completely revised edition of Science for Children: Resources for Teachers, this book is an annotated reference guide to hands-on, inquiry-centered curriculum materials and sources of help for teaching science from kindergarten through sixth grade.
Selecting resources to teach elementary school science can be confusing and difficult, but few decisions have greater impact on the effectiveness of science teaching. Educators will find a wealth of information and expert guidance to meet this need in Resources for Teaching Elementary School Science, developed by the NSRC.
First in an NSRC series of resource guides for elementary, middle school, and high school science teachers, this book is an annotated guide to hands-on, inquiry-centered curriculum materials and sources of help in teaching science from kindergarten through sixth grade. It details about 350 curriculum packages, describing the activities involved and what students learn. Each annotation lists recommended grade levels, accompanying materials and kits or suggested equipment, and ordering information. The guide also features sections with references for teachers and information about facilities such as museums and other organizations from which teachers can obtain resources and assistance.
"This reference book is clear and easy to use. It is an invaluable resource to any school that uses or wants to use hands-on, inquiry science--a must for your school's professional library." NSTA, April 1997
