Presenter: Kris Correira
Webinar Description: Science by Inquiry is where children begin with a question and then answer that question through investigation. Inquiry engages children to make learning more fun and enduring. Any current science program can be adapted to take on this approach, or you can start from scratch to create a project of interest to your children. Kris Correira will show you how Science by Inquiry can be as structured or as open as you like. Use it as your main approach to science, as a way to liven up a structured curriculum, or as a fun addition to what you are already doing.
