Everyday Earth and Space Science Mysteries
Stories for Inquiry-Based Science Teaching
What are the odds that a meteor will hit your house? Do you actually get more sunlight from Daylight Saving Time? Where do puddles go? By presenting everyday mysteries like these, Everyday Earth and Space Science Mysteries will motivate your students to carry out hands-on science investigations and actually care about the results.
These 19 open-ended mysteries focus exclusively on Earth and space science, including astronomy, energy, climate and geology. While the lessons in Everyday Earth and Space Science Mysteries are primarily focused on Earth and space sciences, students cannot study the Earth without understanding its biological history, just the same as they cannot study other planets in our solar system without understanding the laws of physics. This book provides teachers with multidisciplinary units of work that can also be undertaken in English, mathematics and engineering classes.
The stories that accompany each science lesson come with lists of science concepts to explore, year level-appropriate strategies for using them and explanations of how the lessons align with national standards. They also relieve you of the tiring work of designing inquiry lessons from scratch.
