In this article, we discuss ways for teachers to address the academic needs of students who are culturally and linguistically diverse (i.e., have a language background other than English) in inclusive classrooms through the modification of science instruction. We provide an example of a lesson plan showing specific suggestions and offer multiple strategies for modifying science instruction to promote �science for all.�
