Sciencewise: Discovering Scientific Process through Problem Solving. Book 3.
This science activity book, for grades 8-12, can be used to teach students the thinking skills they will need to undertake scientific exploration on their own. The skills they develop will improve their science abilities and enhance their overall academic performance. This book is divided into two sections: (1) "Dynamo Demos", teacher-led demonstration and discussion activities that teach students scientific process skills; and (2) "Creative Challenges" in which students use a combination of solution-generation and trial-and-error to design and develop their own experiments to solve a specific problem.
