Inquiring Minds Want to Know

Learning through inquiry is allowing students to discover things by themselves. Give students a set of materials and basic guidelines for safety and group requirements and let them spring in to active learning!

I have used inquiry based learning by using science kits that, although formatted, allow students to explore objects on their own. Students are not graded on specific summative assessments, but rather on the ways in which they work cooperatively and complete minimal task requirements.

I am really interested in how to use a middle school science curriculum to foster hands on inquiry science lessons.
