The Fifth Edition of this popular elementary science methods text emphasizes learning science through inquiry, implementation of the Learning Cycle, NSE standards, constructivism, technology, and strategies for teaching diverse learners. Teaching Science for All Children employs an inquiry model throughout, especially apparent in the design of its learning cycle lesson plans. Engaging Questions, Exploration, Explanation, Expansion, and Evaluation make up the "Es" of this modern learning cycle based on the model first invented by Robert Karplus as part of the Science Curriculum Improvement Study in the 1960s. The text provides methods for future teachers to foster awareness and understanding among their students of the nature of science; to construct understandings of and connections between various science content; to encourage application of science inquiry processes in the classroom; and to develop their students' understanding of the interactions between science, technology, and society. The final sections of the book incorporate Life Science, Physical Science, and Earth and Space Science lessons as a means to convey important pedagogical content knowledge and ideas to implement in the elementary classroom.
