This unique approach to elementary science education provides educators with the theory, instructional guidelines, illustrative case studies, and a variety of pedagogical and assessment tools necessary for teaching elementary school students about scientific inquiry. This text describes how elementary teachers can successfully teach their students about scientific inquiry, providing a bridge between theory and sound instructional practice. Teachers are provided with clear guidelines for developing inquiry units in action, as well as information and examples of lessons aimed at specific inquiry skills that are compatible with national standards in science education. Etheredge and Rudnitsky offer guidance and concrete examples of formative and summative assessment, and strive to help teachers connect scientific inquiry to other aspects of science teaching and the curriculum.vt-jfwg do we see in a graph that we do not see in a table?
