An Oceanographic Field Course for the Eighth Grade.
Forbes, Lynn; And Others
This manual contains a suggested Oceanographic Field Course designed as a supplement to an eighth grade science program. The three principle objectives of the course are: (1) to stimulate the interest of young students in the marine sciences; (2) to instruct students in the scientific method of field observation and laboratory investigation; and (3) to take advantage of the interdisciplinary nature of oceanography to teach the basic principles of general science. There are seven sections to the manual with suggested plans for teaching, and a suggested arrangement to accommodate the variable times in which they may be taught. Each section includes a discussion of the section topic, suggested bibliography, lesson plan, and field and laboratory procedures. Each section is concerned with sampling marine life and/or determining environmental conditions. This work was prepared under an ESEA Title III contract.
