What We Do

The Elementary Science Integration Projects (ESIP) promote connections between language arts instruction and inquiry-based science in grades K-8. Project activities include:

Project staff also maintain a library of science trade books that serve as the basis for an on-line readers' advisory called Search It! Science.

ESIP programs evidence an appreciation of content knowledge, a regard for student-centered practices, and a respect for teachers' need to negotiate the complexities of classroom life.
