Intended for use by teachers and schools for the deaf, the booklet presents activities and units which may be used in planning and developing a science curriculum. A workshop classroom is described. Attention is given to teaching methods specifically applicable to the deaf. Suggested subject areas, materials, or activities for preschool programs are large muscle movement, the senses, and integrated use of the senses; for primary programs, plants, ice cubes, light and shadows, structures, balance boards and simple machines, the play frame, air and water, simple electrical circuits, and trips; and for intermediate programs, bones, animal husbandry, tadpoles, microecology, time, growing molds, community constructions, mealworms, and rocks (crystal growing and three dimensional models). Physical sciences delineated for the advanced program include astronomy, thermometry, geology, and a school weather station; biological sciences include the study of the microscopic world, incubation of chicken eggs, and anatomy, physiology, and zoology; and extracurricular clubs and ideas are a joint study club, classes in schools for students who hear, and sciences. Appendixes contain plans for equipment and illustrations of completed science projects. (SN)
