Synopsis

Hands-On Science Mysteries for Grades 3-6 Inquiry-Based Investigations That Address the National Science Standards by James Robert Taris, Louis James Taris

In Hands-On Science Mysteries for Grades 3-6, the authors connect science to real-world situations by investigating actual mysteries and phenomena, such as the strange heads on Easter Island, the ghost ship Mary Celeste, and the Dancing Stones of Death Valley. The labs are designed to encourage the development of science inquiry, in which students will observe, take notes, make diagrams, interpret data, and arrive at solutions, and include extensions for further investigation.

Reviews

Labs in this book get students investigating mysterious phenomena such as the Loch Ness monster, the Bermuda Triangle, and more while developing their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. Your scientists observe, take notes, make diagrams, interpret data, and determine conclusions, all while learning basic science concepts. (Learning Journal, Back-to-School 2007)
