Call for Papers

Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideaspublishes innovative manuscripts that will provide teachers and educators with the best classroom-tested projects, experiments, and curriculum ideas, in particular with those which promote science inquiry and integration among students. Journal editors encourage submissions that integrate science throughout all disciplines, including but not limited to English/Language Arts, Social Studies, Mathematics, Performance/Visual Arts, as well as English Language Learners and Special Education.

Submission Guidelines: Content should be grade appropriate, innovative, grounded in real science, classroom tested, and if applicable, original source of activity shall be cited. Manuscript shall relate to the Next Generation Science Standards and the four core areas as well as any appropriate state standards. If applicable the author(s) shall make connections to the Common Core Standards. The activity shall be linked to a theoretical framework. Classroom setup and timeframes for doing the project ought to be specified, and sources must be adequately referenced as well as up-to-date.
