The Investigating Science Series explores a variety of specific areas in the sciences and provides the teacher with instructional activities. One set of activities provided is an interdisciplinary array based on a single scientific concept. This section includes specific open-ended
activities in Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, Math, and the Arts. Also included is an activity
related to an individual or group who made a significant contribution in this area. The teacher
may choose to do all, some, or only one of the activities to provide instruction to students. The
open-ended nature of each of the activities empowers the teacher to differentiate and/or individualize
what the students produce based on interest, strength, and/or ability.
The pages that follow the interdisciplinary activities offer sub-topics related to, but not necessarily
covered in the main scientific concept. Each of the sub-topics has an array of extension
enrichment activities arranged according to a thinking and problem-solving hierarchy based primarily
on the work of Benjamin Bloom. Teachers or students may choose to explore any or all
of the sub-topics as extension/enrichment activities to support the main scientific concept.
Selection of these activities may also be determined by students’ interest or curiosity. The differentiation
component for this section is provided through the leveled activities.
The series includes three books: Physical Science, Earth Science and Life Science. Download all Table of Contents pages here.
SPECIAL SET PRICE: If purchased individually, these books would cost $44.85.
