9781936959228: Science Fair Warm-Up, Grades 8–12: Learning the Practice of Scientists - PB328X1

Even science fair enthusiasts may dread grappling with these two questions:

1. How can you organize many high school students doing many different projects at the same time?
2. How can you help students while giving them the freedom of choice and independence of thought that characterize genuine inquiry?

Answer the questions and face science fairs without fear with the help of this book from the Science Fair Warm-Up series. This book, for grades 8–12, further develops the ideas about the practices of scientists. In addition, many of the problems students will encounter are very challenging, so much so that the problems have been used with both grade 8 students and university science graduates in field testing. In addition to offering original investigations, the book provides problem-solving exercises to let students hone the inquiry skills to carry projects through independently.

To help you meet your teaching goals, the series is based on the constructivist view that makes students responsible for their own learning, aligns with national standards, and uniquely addresses the new Framework for K–12 Science Education. Science Fair Warm-Up will prepare both you and your students for science fair success. But even if you don't have a science fair in your future, the material can make your students more proficient with scientific research.

"An exciting publication that engages students and fills a need for innovative and conscientious teachers. Students and teachers are likely to encounter real science with the ideas, approaches, and questions the materials encourage." —Robert Yager, Professor Emeritus at the University of Iowa and past president of NSTA

Review:

[T]he suggested experiments are engaging, easy to follow, could readily be adapted by teachers to suit the UK curriculum. For example, experiments such as Who can build the strongest bridge? (page 18) and Cookie contest (page 41) both have excellent links to design and technology and could be enjoyed by children from both key stage 1 and key stage 2 (ages 5 11). Science fair warmup may be a little in-depth for children to use independently, but it would certainly make a useful planning tool for primary science lessons. --Primary Science March/April 2014
