Curriculum For Inquiry-Based Science


Battle Creek Science Kits 

The Battle Creek Area Math and Science Center offers inquiry-based units (this will link you directly to their site). Here is a direct link to their unit summaries.

The Battle Creek Area Mathematics and Science Center has developed a Kindergarten through Seventh grade inquiry-based science curriculum that is aligned with the Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations. The purpose of the program is to provide good, inquiry-based science instruction in the classroom with opportunities for students to engage in all four strands of science proficiency (physical science, life science, earth science, and inquiry and technology). The curriculum provides teachers with classroom instruction that includes opportunities for interaction in the classroom, where students carry out investigations, talk and write about their observations and emerging understandings, and discuss ways to test them. Each unit undergoes an extensive development and evaluation process.
