 Teaching K-6 Science in Small Schools on a Financial Shoestring. ERIC Digest.
Elementary teachers in general and rural elementary teachers in particular are asked to teach science when typically they have not been adequately prepared in at least three critical areas: fundamental science knowledge; meaningful preparation in actually teaching science; and instruction as to buying and using pertinent course materials.
Invariably, this science program is user-friendly because it is constructed by the very individuals who will implement it and who have a practical and theoretical interest in its successes and failures.
Teaching K-6 science in small schools through teacher/student-made modules from free and inexpensive materials is not a cure-all for the difficulties of teaching science in small schools.

If the bar-tailed godwit is flying the length of the Pacific nonstop, its migration is unrivaled by even the arctic tern, said Bob Gill, who studies shorebirds at the USGS Science Center in Anchorage.
Arctic terns, which commute from Antarctica to the Arctic each year, land on the ocean and feed during their migration, but bar-tailed godwits can’t rest on the ocean during the five-to-six day trip, instead relying on fat reserves that sometimes double their weight.
