Below you will find copies of lab sheets for use in the elementary classroom.  These lab sheets have been created utilizing the Missouri GLE's as a template for student mastery of scientific inquiry.  They follow the ESP PowerPoint we have studied in class.  Any of the ESP Gimmies can be easily integrated into the ESP model.  If you are looking for anything more specific, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I would be happy to help you out!
