Project-Oriented Science: A Teachers' Guide- eBook

Take any experiment book and turn it into real science with this guidebook for the science teacher. Invaluable for homeschoolers!


Especially designed for homeschoolers, but also useful for the regular classroom, Project-Oriented Science addresses how to teach science by using projects instead of traditional textbooks. Using this method, the textbooks become reference guides. Planning worksheets and experiment guides are included for use with any project or scientific demonstration.

This book describes the techniques of scientific skills which can be taught while doing a project. By using three or four projects a year, an elementary teacher can teach questioning, drawing, observing, measuring, and recording as well as other valuable skills. By following up with instruction on the necessary concepts, an instructor can have a fun, successful year of science.
