This study surveyed the degree of comfort expressed by prospective elementary teachers in using inquiry techniques when teaching science. Sixty-six students enrolled in three sections of the Elementary Science Methods course at a university in the northwest United States responded. The general perception expressed by these prospective elementary teachers was that they were unable to use techniques consistent with inquiry science as they were never involved in such processes as students. During their schooling as well as their studies at the university, prospective elementary teachers did not feel they encountered such teaching. This paper concentrates on what science educators can do to support the shift toward inquiry science in the elementary classroom. Inquiry is discussed as a central part of the methods courses.
