Workshops

Learn how to incorporate inquiry-based scientific investigations into your upper-elementary elementary science curriculum through an Inquiry in Action workshop. This hands-on workshop, given by authors of Inquiry in Action engages teachers in the elements of inquiry, while teaching chemistry-related physical science content.

What will I learn in the Inquiry in Action workshop?

Inquiry in Action 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 3–5 and can easily be integrated into any curriculum.

Workshop participants will:

  • Conduct science investigations that build physical science and inquiry knowledge and skills
  • Get background information and activities highlighting physical properties and physical change, and explanations featuring molecular model illustrations and animations
  • Receive a printed copy of everything taught in the workshop—and much more—with the book Inquiry in Action

Attend a session

Workshops are being held at the following science education conferences this year. While registration is not necessary for the workshop, you must register for the conference at which the workshop is being presented in order to attend. See ya there!
