    Description & More Details



    Water is all around us. In the third component of the Young Scientist Series, teachers learn how to guide children in deepening their understanding of liquids, and water, in particular. Teachers begin by preparing themselves and their classroom for investigations ranging from experimenting at the water table to exploring water in nature. Next, teachers hone their ability to guide children's open and focused explorations of water and its properties, and learn how to best observe, assess, and document learning. Four detailed chapters help children learn important science inquiry skills including questioning, investigating, discussing, and formulating ideas and theories.
