Empower and Engage your science students!
This Powerpoint presentation walks you through the RACECAR method of inquiry, how to implement it in your classroom, and a sample/practice inquiry project for Layers of the Earth.
The RACECAR inquiry method was developed by a science teacher for teachers who want students to have more creative control in their class and their learning. Each letter stands for a different step in the hands-on inquiry method where students are given resources and create their own experiments to test and learn more about the concept.
RACECAR inquiry makes for an engaging lesson where students lead the way and teachers are NOT expected to lecture or be the only fountain of knowledge in the class. Follow the steps, walk you students through the example given, and get ready to watch your student improve their critical thinking skills while interacting with the material on a deeper level than you've imagined.
