Description: When we think about how science education has been conducted in the past we find that it has most often been done through rote memorization and reading from the textbook. However, Research has found that many students felt unengaged and disconnected from the material when it was taught in this way. Recently, educators have been considering a new approach to teaching science in elementary school known as scientific inquiry. This is a process that includes students asking a question about the natural world that is of interest to them. Then they make predictions, develop and conduct an experiment, come up with an explanation and discuss it as a class. This method of learning is process based and student directed where the teacher plays the role of the facilitator; guiding students toward material that needs to be covered and expanding their thinking. Using this method, science is being successfully taught to preschoolers, which was not considered a possibility in the past, has been proven effective with dual language learners, can be modified to help students with special needs, and is great for differentiation in the classroom. . In this presentation, through the research of professional education journals and personal experiences in the classroom, I will explore how to correctly implement scientific inquiry, why it is considered to be so effective, and which students can benefit from this process.

Description: Questa attività si divide in due fasi:
- Nella prima si è utilizzerà un PowerPoint all’interno del quale viene brevemente spiegato cos’è il Festival di Sanremo, quando nasce e perchè.
I ragazzi saranno tenuti a leggere le slide in classe a voce alta, comprendere e memorizzare velocemente il contenuto.
