I think the inquiry based approach would work best. In other words, you would design the lesson and provide the materials but the students would do their own inquiry based work to come up with their results. American students need so much more of this kind of work (along with strong book-based knowledge) but they need a chance to DO and TRY. This also takes away from us as teachers having to have all the "answers."
Also, have you visited PINTEREST? They have lots of science and math ideas for all grade levels (be sure to look for the ones that would work as an inquiry-based approach).
