Our goal with Data Puzzles is to bring teachers more than just innovative data-driven classroom activities. We want to empower educators to examine and hone their own skills and practices, dive deeper into three-dimensional learning (content, skills and practices, crosscutting concepts), and discover new ways to engage students in science learning and exploration. Here are some additional tools and resources for learning more about the pedagogical practices and philosophies that form the foundation of Data Puzzle instructional design:
