Engaging, well-presented ideas for teaching the processes of science! This comprehensive, easy-to-use volume incorporates a developmental, hands-on approach to assist those teaching elementary science in becoming proficient in the process of scientific inquiry. Topics have been logically organized, exposing readers first to basic scientific principles and later to more sophisticated applications. In addition to guiding readers to a mastery of the most important skills commonly used in basic science laboratories, Gabel's book challenges them by introducing and examining elements of science that are often omitted from traditional methods books. An outstanding sourcebook!
