This pack takes students through the process step-by-step using a variety of formats. There are pages that can be made into booklets for students to complete during guided or independent investigations. The student booklet pages are editable, so you can model how to use any page with your students.
Also included are display materials to support your teaching of the stages of inquiry and for students to refer to throughout their learning experiences
You will receive:
Posters showing the stages in a science inquiry
Student booklet for use during an inquiry (includes an assessment rubric for Australian grades 3 and 6)
