SCIENCE, KINDERGARTEN AND GRADE ONE.
Fresno County Schools, CA.
A GUIDE FOR THE TEACHING OF SCIENCE IN KINDERGARTEN AND FIRST GRADE IS PRESENTED. THE PURPOSE IS TO HELP TEACHERS IN IMPLEMENTING THE COURSE REQUIREMENTS IN SCIENCE. THE MAJOR GOAL IS TEACHING CHILDREN TO THINK IN A SCIENTIFIC WAY. SUGGESTED UNITS FOR KINDERGARTEN ARE ANIMALS AND PLANTS, WEATHER, DISCOVERY, AND THE FIVE SENSES. THE UNITS FOR GRADE 1 ARE PLANTS, ANIMALS, SOUND, AND GEOLOGY. CONCEPTS ARE BUILT FROM EXPERIENCES. ACTIVITIES WHICH PROMOTE AND STIMULATE PROBLEM-SOLVING SITUATIONS AND DEVELOP SCIENTIFIC ATTITUDES ARE DISCUSSION, EXPERIMENT, EXCURSION, READING, THE USE OF RESOURCE PEOPLE, AND EVALUATION. EACH UNIT DESCRIBED INCLUDES VOCABULARY, APPARATUS, EQUIPMENT AND SUPPLIES, PROBLEMS AND CONCEPTS, AND RESOURCES AND ACTIVITIES. TEACHERS SHOULD DEVELOP SCIENCE SKILLS BY THE SAME INTELLECTUAL PROCESSES INVOLVED IN LEARNING TO READ--OBSERVATION, VISUAL AND INTELLECTUAL DISCRIMINATION, AND THE INFERRING OF LOGICAL RELATIONSHIPS. SUGGESTIONS ARE MADE FOR ARRANGING THE CLASSROOM IN THE LIGHT OF SCIENTIFIC INTERESTS.
