"This revision of a very successful science methods text includes coverage of methods, activities, and science content. "Teaching Children Science" presents current ideas about teaching children science in a motivating, engaging style that will positively draw students towards the teaching of science to young children." There are nine basic science teaching methods chapters and three potentially free standing parts that focus respectively on how to teach Earth/Space, Life and Physical Science content. Each of these three parts has a lesson and unit plan, followed by chapters that provide science content and chapters that contain activities and demonstrations for children. Through its structure, writing style, and attention to contemporary issues, this volume serves as an important resource in teaching students to create science experiences within the context of discovery learning; thereby, providing students with the necessary skills and knowledge to fully comprehend that they will be teaching children science, not the other way around." For readers with an interest in science and, perhaps, drawing children to the teaching of science as a career choice.
