This new science series is so easy to use! Activities build upon children's natural inquisitiveness about their world. Numerous hands-on activities encourage children to make observations, ask questions, test ideas, and share results. By actively engaging in inquiries, children begin to develop a knowledge and understanding of the scientific world. As students become involved in the activities in this book, there are questions that help you guide them through the learning process. In addition, we've provided information on literature, bulletin boards, extensions into other curricular areas, and technology such as World Wide Web sites and instructional television.
