Mon Feb 05, 2018 3:06 PM in Fun way to introduce Science
Hello Everyone! I am pursuing a degree in elementary education and I would like to know a good way to introduce the idea of scientific inquiry that students would really enjoy. I've heard of "black box" activities, but what other types of activities are there that would be a fun way to introduce science?

Hello Haley Maxwell, Like the others have said, I believe having hands on activities will definitely get your students engaged about science. You also have to make the activities relevant to the students as well so it them becomes meaningful. I would also recommend using the 5E model for planning my lessons/activities.
