Quick Earth Science Labs k-2 is part of a series that build science skills through hands-on, open-ended labs. Designed to support the National Science Education Standards, the 25 inquiry-based activities in this book encourage observation and critical thinking, while exploring the following earth science topics: the Earth's surface, rocks and soil, weather, the Sun, and the night sky. Each lab includes Teacher's Notes and four activities that encourage children to: make predictions, collect and analyze data, communicate results, design their own experiments, use science tools, work cooperatively, combine science with other subjects, and do Internet research. Quick Earth Science Labs Grades K-2 will get students excited about "doing" science: exploring questions through investigations, reaching conclusions, and sharing them with others!
