Often our students' ideas about science remain hidden to us as teachers. Using activities designed by our research group you can gather data about your students' ideas about science teaching, learning, and scientists. Doing so can help you better understand your students' ideas about science and plan motivating and relevant science instruction.
These lesson plans are designed to be completed in one class period. For each lesson plan there are a number of options you can choose based on your students, available time, and your own personal interest.
