Have you found that your science classes just skip from unit to unit? Do you want to get away from science lessons that stress vocabulary and memorization of facts? Are you pondering how to get your students more involved in science? These were some of the questions we thought about when we designed hands-on experiences in science for upper elementary students. According to the National Research Council in Fulfilling the Promise, Biology Education in the Nation's Schools, future curriculum goals for both elementary and secondary science teaching will emphasize hands-on exploration by the students, the development of skills in observation, comparison, measurement, questioning and understanding and the view of science education as a continuous, interrelated process rather than isolated units of study.
