Learn how to incorporate inquiry-based scientific investigations into your middle school science curriculum through an onsite workshop based on lessons from the Middle School Chemisry Unit.
This hands-on workshop, given by authors of the book engages teachers in the elements of inquiry.
What will I learn in a Middle School Chemistry 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 6 through 8 and can easily be integrated into any curriculum.
Workshop participants will:
- Learn how to incorporate inquiry into a science curriculum
- Conduct science investigations that build physical science and inquiry instruction skills
- Conduct activities highlighting physical properties and change, chemical change, and density
- Enhance their content knowledge of physical science phenomena
