The three words that first come to mind when I hear the word science are:  fun, exciting, and inquiry learning.

I personally still have problems with the "crack".   I think that the teacher is the person in the crack and the person that keeps both sides flowing. There are some students who would find making observations and summaries fun and others are reluctant.  My goal is to try to teach students to make observations and summaries instead of just trying to find facts and answers.  This is the hard for me, especially at the 9th grade level. My goal is to try to create ideas that will help me.  This morning I made a summary of observations and I will test to make more summaries and hopefully I won't fall through the crack.
