Why Sci? A Multimedia Resource for 5th Grade Classrooms
Fun, engaging science tools for the classroom! These multimedia modules illustrate hard to teach Physical and Earth Sciences concepts and provide strategies for engaging 5th grade students in active learning. The videos and companion materials model an inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning science and are directly aligned to Ohio Academic Content Standards.
Featuring area science experts from Imagination Station, The Challenger Learner Center of Lucas County and The University of Toledo, the modules delve into scientific concepts and principles of light, sound, electricity/magnetism and Earth rotation.
Each module is comprised of:
- a fast-paced STUDENT VIDEO to introduce the featured science concepts;
- a "TEACHING TIPS video offers more in-depth explanations of concepts and demonstrates how to facilitate activities presented in the student video and,
- an ASSESSMENT TOOL to assist educators in measuring student learning.
