Activity overview:

Educator's Voice VIII: Inquiry-Based Learning: Preparing Young Learners for the Demands of the 21st Century

Summary: In this classroom early learners are challenged to explore a hands-on investigation in science. Using inquiry to inform the process, students are led through a carefully developed and exciting study on the life of worms. Across observations, rich discussions, and nature journals, a multi-sensory experience unfolds in one urban classroom.
