Teacher's Guide to Seeds: The MATCH Box Project; Prototype Edition.
Standring, Gillian; And Others
The objective of this multimedia kit is to provide third and fourth grade children with materials with which they can interact, and which will help them to explore a selected part of their environment. By examining the fruits and seeds in the box, by experimenting with them, and by watching them grow, children will acquire skill in manipulating small objects; devising and designing experiments; predicting, observing and recording results; and explaining and testing their conclusions. The kit contains seeds, fruits, maps, data charts, books, equipment for experiments, and a film loop. Suggestions for using the materials are presented in the form of 11 lesson cards. In addition, there are suggestions for things to do before and after the kit. Background information on the material in the kit is provided for the teacher, as well as a bibliography and film list. A short history of the MATCH Box Project prefaces the guide. (JY)
