The truth is: Valid research demands more than beakers and Bunsen burners-- much more. So give kids the lowdown on how real scientists work. This engaging book shows you how to develop students creative and critical thinking skills to make qualitative and quantitative observations, compare testable research questions and hypotheses, design an experiment, collect and analyze data, and present results and conclusions orally and in writing. In addition to handy reproducible pages, the book is packed with special features: an unusually large section on quantitative analysis and data interpretation, plenty of background for teachers inexperienced with statistics and data analysis, and a mix of both formative and summative assessment strategies.

Review:

Making things make sense, step by step. It's hard to decide which is more appealing in this book: the step by step progression through teaching teachers and students how to "do" science inquiry, or the several options for teachers so they can suit the program to their time. Although my students have had some experience with inquiry, I found the organization of this program, the use of simple materials, and the linking to commonly available sites to be the best approach I have found. Furthermore, it is great to find a program that requires very little tweaking. The authors' acknowledgement that some teachers will need to shorten the unit makes the book much more user friendly. --Reviewed by: Barney Peterson (Everett, WA) on November 2, 2007
