Thank you for posting this. I hear many teachers have the concern of not being able to fit science in the way they would like to if at all. I love inquiry learning when it comes to science and I wish there was more time for the students to take more control of their own learning.

I taught preschool for years and we used lots of books. I also made it a point to go outside during each time of the year when seasons were changing and point out the differences and how it "feels" outside. Another useful tool is books, books, and more books!! Books with realistic pictures are very helpful!! Good luck!

I agree with what most are saying on here. Making sure you use hands on activities is a big motivator for any student. I would also try putting students into groups with a project "competition" of some type. Boys vs Girls. This will motivate the girls because they love it when they beat boys. Bring into class some examples of great female contributors to science! Good Luck!
