Abstract

This capstone was created to provide a resource to help physical science teachers incorporate activities that promote curiosity. The background for this resource is established through an analysis of the research that has been done on the topic of curiosity. The research presented shows the impact curiosity has on life, child development, and specifically education. The paper then goes on to explain why a resource seemed the most appropriate method to answer the question: In What Ways Might a Ninth Grade Physical Science Teacher Reignite Curiosity?. The bulk of the paper is the resource it contains detailed instructions and advice on thirty-six different activities. All of these activities are also cataloged on a website that is listed multiple times in the resources. The capstone concludes with a review of lessons learned and a look forward to new projects.
