Teaching Children Science encompasses everything pre-service elementary educators need to learn to teach science and scientific ways of thinking to elementary school students. Written in a clear, motivating style, this text helps aspiring elementary teachers become leaders who can inspire young children to experience science through the joys and challenges of inquiry and discovery. Additionally, six chapters devoted specifically to content knowledge in the areas of earth/space, life, and physical sciences provide readers with the foundations they will need as beginning science teachers. The 9th Edition further integrates the Next Generation Science Standards, new teaching vignettes in order to provide a realistic view of teaching science in today's classrooms.
