Answering the Question “Why?” in Science
3 In-service Credits/ 45 hours Instructor Jason Stevenson February 1-28, June 1-28, and October 1-30
Children often question the world around, asking questions such as, “Why is the sky blue?” or “Why do the leaves change colors?” just to name a few. The wonderful thing is, as children grow, they never stop questioning. However, it is also unfortunate that they often do not take the time to research the answers to their questions. This course is designed to encourage educators to research the most asked, or wondered about, questions that carry from childhood into adulthood. By researching and understanding the answers to these questions, educators can connect this information to the topics that they teach in class, making the material even more engaging and understandable, while at the same time, answering the most common questions that students have about the world in which they live. This course is recommended for PreK-12 educators
