Abstract: Although changes are constantly occurring in the world of science, [ouch of what we are asked to teach in middle-level science is tried and true. We tend to work with a variety of packaged products like Chemical Education for Public Understanding Program (CEPUP) kits or Activities integrating Math and Science ( AIMS) activities. Usually these packages well-thought-out lessons that demonstrate specific concepts. I believe, though, that we do a disservice to our students when we spend so much of our time in a prepackaged world and do not give children the opportunity to experience the amazing science of everyday objects.
