The authors present an overview of a PBL project where they worked hard to integrate science knowledge along the lines of the State Standards and continual student assessment. To provide a better idea of how the unit progressed, they focused on one of the topics investigated. I do not see where, based on the information presented, inquiry was a part of the process but it could be a matter of interpretation or presentation. Interesting lesson I would recommend anyone who would like an idea of how to being a PBL project check this out!
