Every lesson guides you through activities, probing questions, misconception alerts, differentiated instruction, and vocabulary support. You'll find preparation tips, troubleshooting advice, and expected results for each inquiry level. And point-of-use references direct you to relevant online resources.
Start with the unit planning pages to review and plan how to teach using the print program, digital curriculum, hands-on inquiry, or your own personalized blend of all three.
Lesson support gives you background knowledge and strategies to develop inquiry skills, along with detailed learning goals and supporting concepts for each key topic.
Suggestions and estimated times for each activity help you select the right lesson for the your students and plan your time effectively.
