Synopsis

Even science fair enthusiasts may dread grappling with these two questions: 1. How can you organise many middle school students doing many different projects at the same time? 2. How can you help students while giving them the freedom of choice and independence of thought that come with genuine inquiry? Answer the questions--and face science fairs without fear--with the help of this book from the Science Fair Warm-Up series. This teachers guide lets you make best use of the original investigations and problem-solving exercises provided by each of the grade-appropriate student editions. The Science Fair Warm-Up series consists of three books; each book builds on the ideas introduced in the previous book, and the problems in the later books are progressively more challenging. The series' field-tested material will help your students develop the inquiry skills to carry their projects through--whether they're middle schoolers preparing for their first science fair or high schoolers ready for very challenging investigations To save you time, the materials are organised to grow more challenging and encourage independent study as students progress through the grade levels.

To help you meet your teaching goals, the series is based on the constructivist view that makes students responsible for their own learning and aligns with national standards and the new Framework for K-12 Science Education. Science Fair Warm-Up will prepare both you and your students for science fair success. But even if you don't have a science fair in your future, the material can help make your students more proficient with scientific research.
