Insights: An Inquiry-Based Elementary School Science Curriculum

Full Description: 

Insights is an innovative, inquiry-based, hands-on science curriculum for elementary school students. The full curriculum consists of 21 modules that represent a balance of life, earth, and physical science. The modules also highlight six major science themes: systems, change, structure and function, diversity, cause and effect, and energy. Each module is made up of a carefully sequenced, age-appropriate set of hands-on experiences designed to be directly relevant to the child. The modules are designed for use in self-contained elementary classrooms, and can be used as a core curriculum to be expanded as necessary, or individually in conjunction with existing programs.
