Thirty-six lessons teach nine process skills: observe, communicate, estimate & measure, classify, make definitions, infer, predict, make a model and investigate. Grade 4-5 applies nine skills to Physical Science (scents, chemical reaction, volume, density, carbon dioxide, mixtures, batteries, acids and bases, etc.), Life Science (leaves) and Earth and Space Science (sun, tectonic plates, lava, eclipses, fossils, craters, glaciers, etc.). Lessons move from building background knowledge to hands-on inquiry to assessment. Aligns to NSES standards. 152-page, spiral-bound, hardcover book includes cross-curricular extension activities.
