  • Next message: Bartley, Robin: "RE: [Teacher-talkinquiry] Extending Kits To Do Inquiry"

    This discussion on how teachers extend kits to include more inquiry has
    been great for me because part of my job is to develop science kits. We
    have had many discussions about how to make our kits more inquiry
    based. Some of them have a little bit of guided inquiry, but many are
    aimed at having kids "discover" basic science principles through
    hands-on exploration and have little to no inquiry involved.

    It sounds like what many of you are doing is using kits as jumping off
    points. We often include additional activities that suggest other ways
    to investigate the same ideas included in the guided activity. Would
    you recommend putting open ended investigations there? Do teachers
    really have time for additional activities?

    I have considered creating two separate sets of activities for some of
    our kits. With one set being teacher directed activities and one being
    starting points or suggestions for student directed activities, but I'm
    not quite sure where to start with this. Any ideas?
