General Education Resources

Here are some resources for general education practices and some excellent sources for non-science content areas.

 

Get Caught Engineering

"Get Caught Engineering was created to inspire elementary students to explore the world of engineering and apply the design process to problem solving." Even though this site was created for elementary students, it can easily be adapted for all grade levels. The best part of the site is the interactive nature of all of the experiments.

Vernier Scientific Experiment

Vernier Scientific has posted the introduction and materials portions of the experiments in their various lab books. The books and experiments range from basic to advanced levels in multiple subjects. The full lab books can be purchased from the website, but the free previews are enough to design an inquiry-based experiment that has the same objectives.
