Doherty, Paul; Brown, Ruth, Ed.
This booklet was written to help teachers climb out of their textbooks and join their students in discovering science for themselves. It features articles by elementary, middle, and high school teachers who have adapted hands-on science for their classrooms, and now teach science using interactive materials from "The Exploratorium Science Snackbook." Articles include: (1) "Getting Hands-On Science Into the Classroom"; (2) Building a Mini-Exploratorium"; (3) "Hands-On Science, In Class and Out"; and (4) "Making Your Own Science Exhibits." Eight science activities are presented. (PR)
