Science and Children sc_oct16_cov

While everyone has the potential to experience a natural hazard, children often have an incomplete view of these phenomena. In this issue, students will see how we can protect ourselves from severe weather and learn to mitigate the impacts of natural hazards by designing solutions through models.

Science Scope ss_oct16_cov

Students often return to the classroom after visiting spectacular examples of Earth science processes during their summer vacations. Why not ask them to share their best selfies with Earth science phenomena featured in the background before you introduce some of the related activities in this issue of Science Scope?

The Science Teacher tst_oct16_cov

The overlap of science and art can provide rich learning experiences for students. Both science and art help develop careful habits of observation, and both engage students with crosscutting concepts like Patterns, Scale, and Proportion. Science teachers appreciate the value of artwork and creativity every time they assign a poster project, design challenge, or creative writing assignment. Perhaps best of all, including the creative arts in science instruction can help dislodge the common misconception that science is simply a dry, tedious accumulation of facts about the world instead of the imaginative, collaborative enterprise that the history of science shows it to be.
