SCIENCE. GRADE TWO.
BAIRD, LORRAINE; AND OTHERS
IN ELEMENTARY SCIENCE EDUCATION, CONCEPTS ARE BUILT FROM EXPERIENCE, NOT MEMORIZED FROM PRINTED MATERIAL. TEACHERS SHOULD BE ALERT AT ALL TIMES TO SET UP OR CALL ATTENTION TO SITUATIONS PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE USE OF PROBLEM-SOLVING TECHNIQUES. THE TYPES OF ACTIVITIES THAT WILL PROMOTE AND STIMULATE PROBLEM-SOLVING SITUATIONS AND HELP TO DEVELOP SCIENTIFIC ATTITUDES INCLUDE--DISCUSSION, EXPERIMENTATION, EXCURSIONS, USE OF AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS, ALLOWING CREATIVE EXPRESSION, OBSERVATION, AND USE OF RESOURCE PEOPLE. ROOMS SHOULD DISPLAY VARIOUS SCIENCE MATERIALS, INCLUDING A NATURE TABLE. THE UNITS USED IN GRADE TWO ARE--MAGNETISM AND ELECTRICITY, METEOROLOGY, HEAT, ASTRONOMY, AND LIGHT. EACH UNIT INCLUDES A VOCABULARY, A LIST OF EQUIPMENT SUPPLIES, PROBLEMS AND CONCEPTS, RESOURCES, AND SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES. FOR EXAMPLE, TO DEMONSTRATE THE CONCEPT THAT FRICTION IS A SOURCE OF HEAT, THE TEACHER SHOULD HAVE THE CHILDREN RUB ERASERS QUICKLY ON THE DESK AND THEN FEEL THE ERASERS.
