ELEMENTARY SCIENCE METHODS: A CONSTRUCTIVIST APPROACH, Sixth Edition, is based on two fundamental and complementary ideas: that it’s more important for children to learn how to do science than to learn about science, and that elementary science teachers needn’t know a great deal of science, but rather should be co- inquirers with their students. To facilitate your learning as a teacher candidate, this text features a wealth of exercises, including open-ended inquiry activities that help you construct your own conceptualizations about science content and teaching methods. The text also contains over 170 process-oriented, open-ended activities, organized by grade level, that practicing teachers can use to encourage children to develop and perform their own investigations. The book’s website, Education CourseMate, provides valuable tools and resources such as additional activities and video clips that you can use both in your college course and later in elementary science classrooms.
