Make your curriculum come alive as your students acquire science knowledge and skills by manipulating, exploring, and experimenting with real objects. This hands-on workshop teaches process-oriented teamwork aligned with the science standards. We discover ways to teach the key process skills. We develop the exploration of questions and critical thought by using a range of Kagan Structures. Science is a verb, not a noun. Students must do science in order to learn the skills needed in today’s technologically advanced world. More importantly, students must do science together! Scientists do not work in isolation. Students learn science content in meaningful ways together. As our students do science, we teach the attitudes, skills, and ways of thinking core to the standards. Through Kagan Structures we release and channel student curiosity, creating life-long learners with a love for science. WS# 33469
