Title: Using FOSS Variables Module to Teach Science at the Elementary Level (3-6) [Methods; Science & Math]

This course provides elementary and middle school teachers a combined approach for teaching some of the most important scientific concepts in grades 3-6. This course content shows how to develop various abilities among middle school students, like building relationships between objects and events, designing experiment, use data to make predictions, apply mathematics for solving science problems, and record scientific data in meaningful way. The course covers the use of the FOSS module “Variables” which are hands-on, inquiry-based self-contained kits. Participating teachers can "try out" instructional approaches and materials. They also develop strategies that satisfy science and math curriculum expectations and standards for teaching their students at schools.
