Learn how to incorporate inquiry-based scientific investigations into your elementary or middle school science curriculum through the Inquiry Matters onsite workshop. This hands-on workshop, given by authors of Inquiry in Action engages teachers in the elements of inquiry.
What will I learn in the Inquiry Matters workshop?
Inquiry Matters workshop participants experience the process of scientific discovery as they contribute their own ideas, help design experiments, and discuss possible explanations for their observations. All activities cover important physical science concepts taught in grades 3 through 8 and can easily be integrated into any curriculum.
Workshop participants will:
- Learn what inquiry is and how to incorporate inquiry into a science curriculum
- Conduct science investigations that build physical science and inquiry knowledge and skills
- Get background information and activities highlighting physical properties and change, chemical change, states of matter, and density
- Receive a printed copy of everything taught in the workshop—and much more—with the book Inquiry in Action.
