Taking Science to School: Learning and Teaching Science in Grades K-8 (STEM Education) by National Research Council, Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education, Center for Education, Board on Science Education, Kindergarten Through Eighth Grade Committee on Science Learning

What is science for a child? How do children learn about science and how to do science? Drawing on a vast array of work from neuroscience to classroom observation, Taking Science to School provides a comprehensive picture of what we know about teaching and learning science from kindergarten through eighth grade. By looking at a broad range of questions, this book provides a basic foundation for guiding science teaching and supporting students in their learning. Taking Science to School answers such question as: When do children begin to learn about science? Are there critical stages in a childs development of such scientific concepts as mass or animate objects? What role does nonschool learning play in childrens knowledge of science? How can science education capitalize on childrens natural curiosity? What are the best tasks for books, lectures, and hands-on learning? How can teachers be taught to teach science? The book also provides a detailed examination of how we know what we know about childrens learning of science-about the role of research and evidence. This book will be an essential resource for everyone involved in K-8 science education-teachers, principals, boards of education, teacher education providers and accreditors, education researchers, federal education agencies, and state and federal policy makers. It will also be a useful guide for parents and others interested in how children learn.
