The countdown is on! This is the last week of school for us. Of course, I'll still have many things to do in my classroom before I actually leave for the summer. For many of us the summer is a great time to get caught up on some professional development or reading for professional growth. This daily deal is just the thing!

Here is the publisher's summary:
Author: Marcia Talhelm Edson
Grade Range: K-2
Young children arrive at school with unrestrained curiosity and wonder about the world. A fact-based, hands-on activity approach to teaching science, however, is not enough to help them deepen their scientific thinking or discoveries. In Starting with Science: Strategies for Introducing Young Children to Inquiry, Marcia Talhelm Edson explores the big ideas surrounding inquiry-based science; she helps teachers thoughtfully plan for and implement a conceptual approach to teaching and learning science so students can engage in observation, questioning, predictions, collaboration, data collection, and a deeper understanding of topics important to their lives.
