Idea-Centered Laboratory Science (I-CLS), [Unit] C, How a Scientist Expects His World To Behave.
Van Deventer, William C.; Duyser, Lucille
The major ideas of this unit are: consistency and uniformity, cause and effect, and parsimony. Laboratory experiences consist of investigations into: projecting expectations, moon and stars, the relationships among different kinds of change (daily, monthly, annual temperature changes), force and motion, chemical reactions, superstitions, origin of the Earth, origin of life, pebbles, cobbles, boulders, and two theories of evolution. The laboratory experiences in this unit, as in all I-CLS units, are inquiry related and designed primarily to develop an understanding of how a scientist expects his world to behave. The format for each laboratory experience is as follows: Introduction, Materials and Equipment, Collecting Data, and Follow-up. (BR)
