ANDREEN, JEAN; AND OTHERS
SCIENCE CONCEPTS IN THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CLASSROOMS SHOULD BE BUILT FROM STUDENT EXPERIENCES, NOT MEMORIZED FROM PRINTED MATERIALS. TEACHERS SHOULD BE ALERT AT ALL TIMES AND CONSCIOUSLY ATTEMPT TO SET UP OR CALL ATTENTION TO SITUATIONS PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE USE OF PROBLEM-SOLVING TECHNIQUES. THE FOLLOWING GENERAL AREAS ARE SUGGESTED AS ACTIVITIES TO STIMULATE PROBLEM SOLVING SITUATIONS AND DEVELOP SCIENTIFIC ATTITUDES--CLASS DISCUSSION, EXPERIMENTS, EXCURSIONS OR FIELD TRIPS, READING, USE OF AUDIOVISUAL MATERIALS, ALLOWING CREATIVE EXPRESSION, OBSERVATION, USE OF RESOURCE PEOPLE, AND EVALUATION. SEVEN SCIENCE AREAS HAVE BEEN ALLOCATED FOR SPECIAL EMPHASIS TO THE THIRD GRADE LEVEL. THE AREAS ARE--SOUND, PLANTS, MAGNETISM AND ELECTRICITY, HEAT, GEOLOGY, CHEMICAL CHANGE, AND ANIMALS. UNITS IN EACH OF THESE ASPECTS OF SCIENCE HAVE BEEN PREPARED AS TEACHERS' GUIDES. SUGGESTED VOCABULARY WORDS, APPARATUS, EQUIPMENT SUPPLIES, WAYS TO INTRODUCE THE UNIT, PROBLEMS AND CONCEPTS, RESOURCE MATERIAL, AND CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES RELATING TO EACH UNIT ARE INCLUDED IN THE INDIVIDUAL GUIDES.
