by: Kelly A. Decker

This article focuses on teaching science standards through doing, constructing, and connecting processes. Students engage in the "doing" through inquiry and hands-on activities. They ask questions, acquire knowledge, and "construct" explanations of natural phenomena, Then students test explanations and eventually "connect" and communicate ideas and thinking to others.
