ABSTRACT
The article presents information on student partnership program "The Adventure Buddies program," that makes inquiry-based lessons more meaningful for elementary children to study. The program paired education students with young children in a series of activities that drew on inquiry-based pedagogy. During the program, education students would teach specific concepts that aligned with curricular needs in an exciting way. Some of the major curriculum topics identified by the teachers included scientific investigation, force and energy, insects and life cycles, sound, light, and heat, and electricity and magnetism. During the program, the children learned how to communicate among themselves rather than have everything directed back to the teacher. The enthusiasm for learning was expressed by elementary children and education students in each of the program lessons. The education students discovered for themselves how productive using an inductive approach to learning can be. INSET: Bees, Pumpkins, and Other Lessons..
