I love science, I have loved science my entire life. I am fascinated with experiments and the way nature creates rocks and leaves. I crave understanding and always have a question about “why” something is the way it is. But not all my students will share my love. How do I help them see that science is cool?
Science can be an overwhelming subject, filled with definitions, theories and brand new ideas that must students will have never seen. This complicated information is important to teach our students, but how do we make it less intimidating?
In a previous post I discussed inquiry based instruction, and how I wondered if it was the best fit for all learners. I understand that every student will have a different learning style and I wondered if inquiry can best fit all our students.
