Invitation to Invent: A Physical Science Unit for High-Ability Learners in Grades 3–4 engages students in investigations and observations that support their learning about simple machines and their uses. Students explore force, motion, and friction as they learn about the six simple machines and how they are put together to form compound machines.

Invitation to Invent was developed by the Center for Gifted Education at The College of William and Mary to offer advanced curriculum supported by years of research. The Center's materials have received national recognition from the United States Department of Education and the National Association for Gifted Children, and they are widely used both nationally and internationally.

Each of the books in this series offers curriculum that focuses on advanced content and higher level processes. The science units contain simulations of real-word problems, and students experience the work of real science by using data-handling skills, analyzing information, and evaluating results. The mathematics units provide sophisticated ideas and concepts, challenging extensions, higher order thinking skills, and opportunities for student exploration based on interest. These materials are a must for any teacher seeking to challenge and engage learners and increase achievement.

About the Author:

The Center for Gifted Education at The College of William and Mary, a research and development center, was established in 1988 under the direction of Dr. Joyce VanTassel-Baska. The center provides services to educators, policy makers, graduate students, researchers, parents, and students in support of the needs of gifted and talented individuals. Located in Williamsburg, VA, the center has established a national reputation for excellence in research, curriculum development, and service. Several major grants, including funding from the Jacob K. Javits Gifted and Talented Students Education Act, have provided significant support for the work of the Center.

Review:

Don't be mislead by the subtitle. This book describes many opportunities for students of wide-ranging abilities to experience quality instruction and critical thinking. It's applicable to all learners, with adaptations and modifications.

This book has a well-developed sequence, with resources for both students and teachers. The pedagogy in the book is excellent, utilizing many of the exemplary approaches designated in the National Science Education Standards. The stand-alone lesson on science safety is a testament to the authors' commitment to safety in the classroom. --Diana Wiig, National Science Teachers Associations
