Abstract: The integration of elementary science with language arts provides a means of keeping science education robust in the elementary classroom. By linking the two subject areas, teachers can take advantage of the highlymotivational content that science provides while using writing as a powerful tool to synthesize science learning. We report on two successful K-4 NASA curricula, Eye on the Sky and Reading, Writing & Rings! which suggest a model for the successful integration of science instruction with language arts through inquiry-based learning.
