Weaving Inquiry into Your Science Curriculum.
Hatton, Mary
In order for students to experience science as scientists do, they must learn the skills of inquiry. This paper examines inquiry as a way of learning science and presents strategies to promote inquiry in teaching science. A model of progression of inquiry skills from grades K-2 to 3-5 is presented and the skills are aligned with the Massachusetts Science and Technology Frameworks. Several strategies, including mystery boxes, discrepant events, and use of the learning cycle to promote inquiry based on personal experiences, are discussed. (Author/SOE)
