Incredible Edibles: Science You Can Eat!
Buckbee, Susan J.; And Others
This book is designed to be a guide for a hands-on science experience for students in grades 3 through 6. Over 200 students can participate at the same time, moving from one station to another. The activities have been selected to encourage experimentation, creativity, higher-order thinking and fun with science. All activities use multi-modality and multi-sensory approaches. Although the program occurs within a 3-hour time frame, the activities could be used individually and/or expanded or adapted for other educational purposes. The program has been developed to be both teacher-friendly and student-friendly. Section I, Nuts & Bolts, provides advice and steps for running the program. Section II, Sections and Stations, presents information on the following sections and the stations they are composed of: (1) Oobleck, (2) Walk On Eggs, (3) Transportation & Food, (4) Preposterous Properties, (5) Food & the Senses, and (6) Fabulous Fast Food.
