About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Child-centered, hands-on activities at the core of all lessons bring children to observe, think, and reason.

Interest is maintained and learning is solidified by constantly connecting lessons with children's real-world experience

Skills of inquiry become habits of mind as they are used throughout.

Lessons integrate reading, writing, geography, and other subjects.

Standards, including developing a broader, supportive community of science learners come about as natural by-products of learning science in an organized way.
