Teaching Science in Elementary and Middle School offers in-depth details about the fundamental features of project-based science and strategies for implementing the approach. In project-based science classrooms students investigate, use technology, develop artifacts, collaborate, and make products to turn what they have got learned.

Because project-based science is a technique aligned with what is known about how you can assist all children learn science, it not only helps students learn science more thoroughly and deeply, it also helps them experience the joy of doing science. Project-based science embodies the foundations in A Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards. Blending principles of learning and motivation with practical teaching ideas, this newsletter shows how project-based learning is related to ideas within the Framework and provides concrete strategies for meeting its goals. Features include long-term, interdisciplinary, student-centered lessons; scenarios; learning activities, and “Connecting to Framework for K-12 Science Education” textboxes. More concise than previous editions, the Fourth Edition offers a wealth of supplementary material on a new Companion Site, including many videos showing a teacher and class in a project environment.
