Reinforce a variety of science concepts while challenging students to design solutions using real-world science skills. 30 articles and activities describe teaching techniques and activities that engage student reasoning and promote critical-thinking. Students assume the role of architects to design, build and finance model structures using paper. They become surgeons to investigate and repair a bone fracture (in a fake leg, of course). Research teams are formed to investigate global problems and report on possible solutions. This book can be applied to life, environmental, earth and physical sciences. Great for students of all ages and would work well for after-school programs. 219 pages, soft cover.
