The Living with Science Program
The National Science Education Standards call for more 'science as process', in which students learn such skills as observing, inferring, and experimenting. They place inquiry as being central to science learning.
Through a process of inquiry, students describe objects and events, ask questions, construct explanations, test those explanations against current scientific knowledge and communicate their ideas to others.
They identify their assumptions, use critical and logical thinking, and consider alternative explanations. In this way, students actively develop their understanding of science by combining scientific knowledge with reasoning and thinking skills.
The design of the Living with Science program matches exactly with this philosophy and it provides a complete resource that allows you to deliver an elementary science program that engages students in the scientific process and helps them develop the skills of inquiry and problem solving.
