How can we cultivate wonder in the science classroom? How can we foster children's curiosity and encourage their questions about the natural world, but also focus their attention? In Organizing Wonder, Jody Hall and her colleagues offer a proven framework for scientific inquiry to help meet this challenge.

For the authors, meaningful scientific inquiry originates with children's own ideas. Students then work collaboratively to explore those ideas, develop hypotheses, and conduct focused investigations. Hall provides a practical guide to structuring this inquiry process, and then her colleagues-all elementary classroom teachers-reflect on their experiences. They offer guidance on getting started, in-depth case studies of inquiry science in action, and strategies for guiding students' inquiry without discouraging their excitement and curiosity.

Organizing Wonder is based on the authors' collaboration with Dr. Wynne Harlen, a leader internationally in the science standards movement and editor of Primary Science . . . Taking the Plunge. As a result, their book not only reflects the importance of the inquiry process, but also describes an approach to inquiry that is aligned with the teaching and learning of concepts outlined in national and state science standards.
