Science Resource for Your Classroom

Free.  It’s one of the best words in the English language to most people.  To an educator, it can be a valuable window of opportunity.  The Natural Inquirer, a publication by the U.S. Forest Service, is a middle school science education journal.  Think a more advanced Ranger Rick if you are familiar with that magazine.  The articles are written by actual U.S. Department of Agriculture – Forest Service scientists who want to share what they do with students around the country.

Topics vary widely – from wildlife and habitats to outdoor activities to bio-energy and climate change, and everything in between.  You can even do a keyword search to pull up volumes that may contain the topic you are looking for.  And the best part?  It’s absolutely free!  The different volumes can be viewed on their website, downloaded to your computer, or you can order hard copies for your classroom.  Their website also has many other additional resources for pre-K through 8th grade students.

So check them out if you’re looking for a unique addition to your classroom resources.
