Nationally and internationally, educators now understand the critical importance of STEM subjects-science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Today, the job of the classroom science teacher demands finding effective ways to meet current curricula standards and prepare students for a future in which a working knowledge of science and technology will dominate. But standards and goals don't mean a thing unless we: 
grab students' attention
capture and deepen children's natural curiosity
create an exciting learning environment that engages the learner
make science come alive inside and outside the classroom setting. 

A Guide to Teaching Elementary Science: Ten Easy Steps gives teachers, at all stages of classroom experience, exactly what the title implies. Written by lifelong educator Yvette Greenspan, this book is designed for busy classroom teachers who face tough conditions, from overcrowded classrooms to shrinking budgets, and too often end up anxious and overwhelmed by the challenges ahead and their desire for an excellent science program. 

This book: helps teachers develop curricula compatible with the Next Generation Science Standards and the Common Core Standards; provides easy-to-implement steps for setting up a science classroom, plus strategies for using all available resources to assemble needed teaching materials; offers detailed sample lesson plans in each STEM subject, adaptable to age and ability and designed to embrace the needs of all learners; and presents bonus information about organizing field trips and managing science fairs. 

Without question, effective science curricula can help students develop critical thinking skills and a lifelong passion for science.
