Powerful Practices in Elementary Science

Powerful Practices series is grounded in questioning, investigation, and assessment The Power of Questioning invites you to nurture the potential for learning that grows out of children’s irrepressible urges to ask questions. The elementary science classroom is the perfect place to take advantage of natural curiosity. Children want to explore, dig, build, play, and wonder. To do this they need to touch, feel, see, observe, listen, manipulate, plan, and create. Hard to Teach Science Concepts is the perfect guidebook for the elementary teacher that feels uncomfortable teaching complex science. The authors provide tools and examples to support the teaching of four foundational concepts including the flow of energy and matter in ecosystems, force and motion, matter and its transformation, and Earth’s shape. The package price constitutes a savings of $76 off the list prices.
