Science inquiry is a scientific approach to writing, reading, and understanding the language of nature. It integrates 'hands-on' and scientific intellectual activity with important aspects of literacy. In this session, presenters engage participants in a science investigation of a common phenomenon using an inquiry-based science teaching model. Participants gain firsthand experience in science inquiry and in how they might use inquiry as a rich context for cultivating and enhancing students' science knowledge and literacy.
