Summary

Provide the pedagogical and content knowledge needed to teach elementary school students science and scientific ways of thinking  
Teaching Children Science: A Discovery Approach encompasses everything pre-service elementary educators need to learn to effectively teach science to their students. Written in a clear, motivating style, this text helps aspiring elementary teachers become leaders who can inspire young children to experience science through the joys and challenges of inquiry and discovery. Additionally, six chapters devoted specifically to content knowledge in the areas of earth/space, life, and physical sciences provide readers with the foundations they will need as beginning science teachers.
 
The 9th Edition further integrates the Next Generation Science Standards, new teaching vignettes, and engaging videos (in the Enhanced Pearson eText), in order to provide a realistic view of teaching science in today’s classrooms.
 
Also available with the Enhanced Pearson eText
The Enhanced Pearson eText provides a rich, interactive learning environment designed to improve student mastery of content with embedded videos and new self-check quizzes with feedback.
