Grades 9–12. The underlying theme of the environmental science series is "sustainability in a global environment." Our knowledge of the complex relationships that organisms have with their environment continues to expand and evolve. Today, more than ever, we understand that the way we interact with our local environment affects the greater global environment. Finding ways to grow and survive while maintaining the planet’s delicate balance is a challenge that we all face. The better we understand the consequences of our actions, the better equipped we are to make decisions that support sustainable environmental practices.

This package of all 20 Inquiries in Science® environmental science kits provides lab activities that help students understand an essential science topic in the area of natural resources, ecology and ecosystems, or human influence on the environment. Each kit includes enough materials for at least 30 students working in groups. Receive a FREE digital Teacher’s Manual and Student Guide for each kit with package purchase.

Inquiries in Science Series

Inquiries in Science® Series Kits

Inquiries in Science® is our exclusive series of hands-on kits specifically designed to help high school students understand abstract, hard-to-grasp science concepts. The series tracks well with most textbooks, and kit topics reflect state science standards and extensive educator input. Since Inquiries in Science® is modular, you can use the kits individually, as a strand, or as a series to teach biology, chemistry, and environmental science.


Improve Student Achievement

Field-tested in classrooms nationwide, Inquiries in Science® employs guided inquiry based on the 5E learning cycle of engage, explore, explain, extend, and evaluate. This inquiry-based approach also promotes STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) practices. It enables students to:

  • Consider a real-world question or problem
  • Plan and conduct an investigation and gather data
  • Understand the science concept by analyzing data and communicating findings
  • Apply their findings to the original real-world question or problem and master the science concept

Inquiries in Science® helps students build critical-thinking and problem-solving skills, and encourages creativity, collaboration, and teamwork. It creates an environment in which you and your students work together as active learners.

Disciplines and topics addressed by the kits were organized and selected based on data from numerous sources, including the National Research Council's National Science Education Standards, AAAS's Project 2061 Science Benchmarks, NAEP's Science Framework, and state science education standards from across the US. In addition, the Inquiries in Science® content and activities reflect the science practices and engineering practices, core ideas, and crosscutting concepts outlined by the National Research Council's A Framework for K–12 Science Education (2011) and the Next Generation Science Standards (2013).
