A number of activities designed to develop each of six concepts listed for each of six conceptual schemes are presented. The conceptual schemes are: (1) Matter may be transformed; under ordinary (classroom-laboratory) conditions it is not created or destroyed; (2) Energy may be transformed; under ordinary conditions it is not created or destroyed; (3) Living things interchange matter and energy with the environment (and with other living things); (4) A living thing is the product of its heredity and environment; (5) Living things are in constant change; and (6) The universe is in constant change. Most activities can be performed by students, although some are intended as teacher demonstrations. Questions to guide discussion are included for each activity; all contain references to texts which are listed in an appended bibliography.
