Low Technology Cool Science
Dumpster diving can extend your science budget and help you include hands-on/inquiry in your science teaching. Thermometers, anemometers, and bird feeders are a trash can away. Other activities require expenditures (Legos and Snap Kits) but are worth the money.

Following the Bouncing Ball
Investigate "happy and sad" balls that lead to investigations into force, motion, and energy as well as the engineering design of a new ball by elementary students. Experience how bouncing balls can lead to a process of engagement, formative assessment through questioning, science inquiry, and finally design products for all students.

Magnetic Moments for Learning
Magnets are much more fun than things to hang on a refrigerator. At their best, they provide the strongest relevant and hands-on ways to explore and build a foundation for understanding the invisible fundamental forces of nature. Explore ways elementary students can measure and test magnetic forces as you also engage in designing ways to test and build with magnets. These investigations are major "attractions" for your students as they build their understanding using their own experiences and data.
