A step-by-step approach to taking giant leaps in science learning

Kid′s Eye View of Science examines learning science from multiple perspectives—especially a child′s. The whimsical character of Mary Froggins guides readers through the steps of igniting students′ natural sense of wonder, incorporating brain research, integrating science concepts with other subjects, and applying science to daily life. The authors demonstrate how to teach science conceptually through the lens of "big ideas" such as change, interdependence, and adaptation. Rich with instructional strategies for exploring inquiry-based science, this valuable resource′s highlights include:

Charts, graphics, forms, and summaries that help teachers translate abstract concepts into concrete lessonsA comprehensive discussion of brain research, including helpful tips to assimilate 10 bodybrain-compatible elements into the classroomPractical hands-on guidance for enriching science programs and improving student outcomes

Field-tested and applicable to multiple intelligences, the book also provides a comprehensive vision for curriculum development with an eye toward preparing students to use their knowledge to shape the future.
