This book gives lessons for teaching hands-on science to students from kindergarten through middle school for every science topic. I just purchased my fourth copy, as I keep loaning mine to interested teachers and not getting it back. It is the only essential resource for effectively teaching science and making it fun! 0. Report. Recently Viewed and Featured. Modern Quantum Mechanics with Applications to Elementary Particle Physics.

By Lawrence F. Lowery. That is what I felt when I opened this ideal everyday science source book. I was taken back in time as I became, once again, that wide-eyed kid, but of course instead of munching on sugar, I munched on words-many of them. Arlington, VA. ISBN: 9781936959099 (Grades K-8). There are over a thousand different ideas for labs, demos, examples, and ways to show your students science processes. I was truly blown away at the quality of the hands-on experiments, all tied into the Benchmarks for Science Literacy and National Science education Standards.

This sourcebook was created because science should be memorable, not memorisable.

This book is filled with great ideas for projects and demos. Most of these projects are still valid at the high school level as well. 2 people found this helpful.

Thank you for your support! In Stock. This book is filled with great ideas for projects and demos.

The Everyday Science Sourcebook is structured like an easy-to-use thesaurus

The Everyday Science Sourcebook is structured like an easy-to-use thesaurus. Just look up a topic in the Index, note the reference number, and then use that number to find a wealth of related activities in the Entry section. For example, looking up meteorology can lead you to notes on the Earth s temperature. From there, you'll see entries on how students can make a liquid thermometer, graph air temperatures, and measure the conversion of solar energy to heat energy.

This is a huge resource for hands-on science activities. The book is divided by topics, so it is super easy to find what you are looking for. The activities begin with easier concepts and move into more challenging ones, so it is so simple to plan for several activities in a row, each one building on the next. The Everyday Science Sourcebook is perfect for me, as I have a science textbook for student use but no experiments or activities, which is what science instruction should be. I pair these activities with "Science in Writing" for a complete learning experience for the students. The one drawback I have about this book is that not all of the materials needed are "everyday", but will require a little extra effort to acquire. That aside, this book has had plenty of use in helping plan hands-on science activities.

I was surprised by the amount of exciting and teachable science content in this book. When I opened the package, I had planned on spending a little time looking through this book, which turned into a long, but enjoyable, time instead! It is not uncommon for me to get anxious about online book purchases, but this science sourcebook exceeded my expectations.

In addition to the easy-to-conduct experiments that can be presented in a classroom setting to students, many of the short science lessons can also provide the missing background knowledge (both the "forgotten" and the "never learned") in science for elementary and middle schools educators. With the implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards, K-8 teachers will need to develop a higher degree of familiarity with key ideas in science. Any educator who received little or no teacher preparation in science (either on-the-job or while in college), along with those who dodged the traditional science methods courses, now have a truly informative and fun "make-up course" available.

I provide science Professional Development training in science, and even I picked up dozens of new ideas! Thanks, Larry Lowery!

Great science experiments, nicely structured with skill/learning levels, not grade specific, recommend to use the index in the back to find and browse the book. This book does NOT contain a curriculum map or lessons plans, but it's great if you need to enhance your science lessons with more hands-on activities and migrate to common core.

This book gives lessons for teaching hands-on science to students from kindergarten through middle school for every science topic. The lessons use easily available and inexpensive materials from your home or a hardware store. I just purchased my fourth copy, as I keep loaning mine to interested teachers and not getting it back. It is the only essential resource for effectively teaching science and making it fun!

The Everyday Science Sourcebook, revised 2nd Edition: Ideas for teaching in Elementary and Middle School

Dr. Lawrence Lowery

By John Cafarella

In the mid 1980's I left the classroom and became a district Science Coordinator. There were not many science coordinators in those days and Hands on science, as we called it, was just then beginning its great awakening. It was starting to matter but, at least in New York City, classrooms were poorly equipped (at best) and science texts, if there were any at all, were, well, for many Sputnik was a recent event. My mandate was to proselytize science teaching, obtain the rudimentary materials, train the staff, and then on to a curriculum. Easier said than done as each step would take years (did I mention there were 38,000 elementary students in the district?) In fact, here in 2013, it's still not done in some schools or districts. I received Dr. Lowery's Everyday Science Sourcebook at one of the first "how to be a science coordinator" workshops that I attended. Better yet, Dr. Lowery was there. It was a life saver. Here were easily replicable interactive activities featuring easily (mostly) obtainable materials. I used the activities in the book faithfully as I established a presence in the district with in-school workshops. The following year, as funds became available, I was able to place a copy of the book in every grade in every school as we continued the training. Dollars for materials were slow in coming but eventually, here we pause to note that a supportive district superintendent is vital for the health of a science program - thank you Dr. Fred Goldberg and, later, thank you Anthony Amato - and we were able to build a viable program. It all started with the Everyday Science Source Book. The basic premise is that science should be memorable, not memorizable. We know from the work of Merilee Sprenger that there are five memory lanes of the brain, procedural, episodic, automatic, semantic and emotional. Episodic and emotional are the most powerful. When students are curious and succeed, they remember. The Everyday Science Sourcebook touches all five lanes but particularly episodic and emotional.
Now it has been updated although, alas, Pluto is gone but it's gone everywhere, relegated to the netherworld of dwarf planets (My Very Educated Mother Just Sent Us Nine.....and now we'll never know). The changes are seamless and user friendly.....Oceanography is now Oceans, Geology is Earth Science, Meteorology is now Weather and so forth. Shockingly (a bit of sarcasm here) there are many elementary teachers who are reluctant or downright afraid to teach science. Here is a non-threatening successful base. Middle School teachers will find it full of ideas as well as real world, and curriculum connections. It is STEM friendly and with Next Generation of Science Standards (NGSS) being unleashed on a currently, largely unsuspecting public, it is as timely as ever. The book is curriculum friendly, be it a research based, text based or district developed. It should be included in every classroom professional library.
After 30 years as a district science administrator and later professional development consultant, Everyday Science Sourcebook is still one of my "go to" sources for interactive science activities.
