Important Instructional Notes

Comprehensive curriculum
may not

follow the order of the text book. Embedding inquiry investigations and process skills into content instruction means
shifting the
e
mphasis from teachers presenting information and covering textbook topics to students
doing

science.
In other words, the
Science as Inquiry
GLEs

should be embedded within the content and hands
-
on activities throughout the year. Incorporate technology
, sc
ience in society, and eng
ineering

whenever possible.
