Product description...

Science Lesson Plans That Develop Understanding of Scientific Ideas and Concepts in Clear Steps

The “Building Foundations of Scientific Understanding” (BFSU) volumes are only part of the package. At no additional charge, the author provides an online support/help service. Go to BFSUcommunity.com, register, and you will have easy access to photographs, diagrams, videos, and other aids that will enhance your presentation and aid your children’s learning of each lesson. There is also space to ask questions, state problems, or make other comments. As the author, I will be on hand to help, so far as I am able, and every group member is encouraged to share her/his experience and expertise. It is hoped that you and your kids will become participating members of a flourishing, supportive, science learning community—BFSUcommunity.com. In total, BFSU provides you with the “what to teach,” the “how to teach it,” and ongoing support needed to give children a solid foundation of knowledge, understanding, and practices covering and integrating all major areas of science. A sidelight will be preparation for NGSS.

Author Information...

Bernard J. Nebel, Ph.D.A life interest and pursuit of science, including an A.B from Earlham College and Ph.D. from Duke University, and a passion for teaching (Catonsville Community College) led Dr. Nebel to write one of the early and highly successful Environmental Science texts. In turn, Nebel recognized the need for more substantial elementary level science education. These highly regarded BFSU volumes (see reviews of 1st edition on Amazon and elsewhere) are the result. Dr. Nebel lives with his wife in Catonsville, MD. He may be reached at: bnebel@erols.com or through www.pressforlearning.com
