The Essentials of Science, K-6 aims to unleash every elementary educator's inner science teacher. Through a plethora of classroom examples, interviews with award-winning elementary science teachers and science education experts, and a wide-ranging look at recent research examining the state of science education, readers will learn

* How to use inquiry-based science to infuse meaning into class investigations and teach students problem-solving skills.
* Strategies for engaging students and keeping the curriculum fresh.
* Ways to increase English language learners' participation in and understanding of science.
