Students as Scientists: Nature-Based Inquiry

Students as Scientists uses nature to inspire student curiosity and scientific investigations. These free units include six lessons plus slides and handouts that will help you guide your students to ask and answer their own questions, bringing the excitement of doing real science to your classroom!

We pulled the best parts of Investigating Evidence, our previous inquiry-based science unit, and combined them with new activities, updated resources, and inclusive teaching practices to create Students as Scientists. As requested, there are now differentiated units for K-5th and 6-12th grades. We also created editable Google Slideshows and Docs to further help teachers create a unit that works for their learners.

These resources were developed with the generous support of private foundation funds, 3-D® Pet Products, Wild Delight® Outdoor Pet Products, and Better Bird©
