Elementary Science:
Online, Interactive, Standards-Based

Free Inquiry Teacher Lessons

In Inquiry, busy teachers can find brief descriptions of both the Science Tools modules and included activities. The core concept and vocabulary for the module are listed on this lesson page. Teachers won’t need to do outside research on the topic or the educational pedagogy behind the lessons because that information can be found in the Teacher Explain for the module and the Teacher Guides that accompany each activity. See excerpts of the Teacher Explain videos here to help you see how they fit into and support the module in Inquiry.

Science Skills: Science Tools

Free Science Tools Teacher Lessons
Core Concept
Essential Vocabulary
Inquiry allows students to learn the skills that scientists use every day at their own skill level. Learning these skills at a young age will help students to participate in science experiments, prepare for science fairs, and observe the world around them. Students learn to use tools such as their senses, rulers, and balance scales through engaging activities. As they grow, students will build on the foundation they have built in their K-2 years.
