Opinions on elementary school science homework

    Totally agree. We perhaps need to recruit more science school teachers to join this forum.

    I agree 100%. I was really hoping she'd respond with "don't worry we're not grading them, it's just to get them thinking and discussing their answers." That would've been awesome. Sadly that was not the case, they did grade them, and apparently many students did poorly.

    The comments here are quite possibly the kind of discussion the teacher wanted to cause in her classroom. The "homework" is just to get the students thinking about the topic beforehand so that they are prepared to participate in the discussion.
